CFDonorAwardsBy COLE FROUDE

Conestoga College offers a wide variety of scholarships and bursaries but did you know that there are approximately 350 total donor-funded awards, scholarships and bursaries available too?

Conestoga is fortunate to have many generous donors who contribute financially to students in certain programs, as well as for achievement in sports and academics, and for students who have financial need or who go above and beyond in the community.

“We have a variety of donors   who range from individuals in the community as well as corporations and foundations,” said financial aid and awards manager Patrick Bennett.

Students can apply for all the awards with a new application introduced this semester via the student portal.

“Students can access the single application by logging on the student portal, clicking on the financial tab and filling out a profile which highlights what their achievements are and their financial position. Then we use that information to see what bursaries, awards and scholarships would be a good fit for them.”
Students better get the jump on filling out the application, as the deadline is Feb. 7. Students can also make changes if their financial status changes or add any extracurricular involvement until the deadline.
