Financial Aid & Awards 

Education should be accessible for everyone, and you shouldn't have to worry about finances while you study. We offer consultation on student loan issues and can assist with your applications for financial assistance.

Scholarships, Bursaries, and Awards

We offer over 300 individual scholarships, bursaries, and awards ranging from $100 to $2000, some based primarily on academic achievement and others on financial need. Unlike loans, these awards do not need to be repaid. CNC offers scholarships, bursaries and awards to incoming and current students as of the 2023/24 calendar year.

Entrance Awards: Receive up to $2000 toward your first year

If you’ve recently been accepted into your program, you may be eligible to receive up to $2000 to help cover tuition starting next fall. Follow the steps listed above using your new CNC login.
