Student Aid and Scholarships

The cost associated with obtaining a post-secondary education can be a challenge for many students. 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.
