Scholarships and Bursaries
Thanks to the generous support of our donors, North Island College is able to offer students in excess of $230,000 in scholarships and bursaries each year.
Scholarships are based on academic standing*
Bursaries are funds designed to assist students who demonstrate financial need.**
Some awards are a combination of both academic performance and financial need.
The criteria for each award are different depending on the wishes of the donor and the program or campus to which it relates.
Applying is easier than ever! One online application form automatically enters students for every eligible award.
Scholarships and Bursaries are awarded in the summer and students will be notified by email or by letter mail.
*Unless otherwise noted, scholarships are awarded to full-time students taking a minimum of 24 credits.
**Students must meet specific eligibility criteria and must submit an application.
Every academic year, two prestigious medal awards are given to exceptional NIC students.
The Governor General’s Collegiate Bronze Academic Medal goes to the student with the highest academic standing in a University Studies program. No application is required.
The Lieutenant-Governor’s Silver Medal is awarded to students in vocational or career programs less than two years long who have excelled in their studies and have contributed in a positive way to the life of the college or of the community. Students must apply for this medal by April 12. The application form is available online or from the Financial Aid office.
