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.

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