Scholarships, Bursaries and Awards


We've created a student awards program that provides financial support while recognizing the diversity and needs of our students and celebrating their achievements.

Through the NBCC Foundation and many generous donors, we are 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.

Each year, bursaries and scholarships are available in varying amounts to students attending one of six campuses in the province.
