All Opportunities

Welcome to the NSCC Student Awards Portal. This application system is used by NSCC to support students in applying for scholarships, awards and bursaries at various times throughout the year. It is also used to collect applications for financial aid programs such as Urgent Aid, Cost of Living bursaries, job/college readiness funding and more.

This directory is intended to inform prospective students and the community about the many award opportunities and financial support options available at NSCC. Once a student is confirmed in a program, they will gain access to the Student Awards Portal and will be able to review award opportunities recommended for them based on their program, campus and other information provided.

To apply to NSCC Student Awards, students and confirmed applicants should login using their NSCC user name and password in the Sign In area on this page, complete the General Application and, if applicable, apply to Recommended Opportunities.

For more information about the financial supports available at NSCC, visit nscc.ca/awards
