School of Community Health Studies Application Scholarships

Did you know that unlike OSAP, scholarships are monies that you do not have to repay?  Scholarships are funds donated by individuals and/or corporations to assist you with the financial challenges of pursuing post-secondary studies. These donors are actually investing in your future career so please take the time to complete an application for those scholarships that you are eligible to apply for.

Have you completed the 2017/2018 Doorway to Dollars Questionnaire (Scholarships and Bursaries Questionnaire)? If No, please note that you will not receive an invitation to apply for these scholarships.
