The cost associated with obtaining a post-secondary education can be a challenge for many students. In fact, New Brunswick students carry 35% more debt than their Canadian counterparts. That's why we've created a student awards program that provides financial support while recognizing the diversity and needs of our students and celebrating their achievements.
New Brunswick Community College (NBCC), through the NBCC Foundation and many generous donors, is pleased to offer a number of opportunities for scholarships, bursaries and awards to our students. Awards may be specific to a campus or program and have varied application criteria and deadlines.
To learn more about the awards available, contact Student Services at your campus.
NBCC Foundation Awards
The NBCC Foundation has granted over $600,000 in student bursaries since 2007.
Each year, bursaries and scholarships are available in varying amounts to students attending one of six NBCC campuses in the province.
To be eligible:
- you must be registered as a full time student at NBCC;
- the regular or contract training program must be at least one (1) year in duration;
- the applicant must demonstrate a financial need.
The application period commences each September for a period of approximately 4 weeks. Interested students can get more information from Student Services or at www.foundation.nbcc.nb.ca.
If you meet the eligibility criteria, you can use one application to apply for multiple awards. Detailed information on the application criteria and the application form can be found at www.foundation.nbcc.nb.ca.
Notification and Disbursement
Students are notified of their award in December of the academic year and disbursements are made in January.
An award ceremony is held at each campus in early winter to recognize the accomplishments of the award recipients.
