CNC Scholarships, Bursaries, and Awards

CNC offers over 300 individual scholarships, bursaries, and awards ranging from $250 to $1500, some based primarily on academic achievement and others on financial need. Unlike loans, these awards do not need to be repaid.

**Awards apply to current attending students at CNC. If you are a new student that will be attending in Fall 2021, award applications will be open by the end of October 2021.

Online applications will be accepted until 11:59 pm on the date of the listed award closing/deadline date. Changes to your application can be made until that time (note that you must click SAVE after making any changes).

Most scholarships and bursaries offered through CNC require that you be registered in both fall and spring semesters within the academic year. Current Domestic and International students are eligible to apply, when open. Current Trades students, registered in Foundation Level programs, are also eligible to apply for awards.

More helpful information can be found on the Education Planner BC website.

These awards are made possible thanks to generous donations from alumni, faculty, staff, associations, union organizations, community members, corporations and compassionate individuals.

If you would like to establish an award with CNC, please view our Donors Page for more information.
