Ministry Partnered Bursaries

Students seeking to apply to these bursaries must first complete the Doorway to Dollars Questionnaire (formerly Scholarships and Bursaries Questionnaire) at least once per academic year, and will be notified once the bursary opportunity becomes available via their myCentennial email. You can locate the questionnaire by logging into myCentennial with your student number and password. Click on "Student" on the left side of the screen. Then Click on "Financial Services". You can find "The Doorway to Dollars Questionnaire (formerly Scholarships and Bursaries Questionnaire)" link on the new page.

Centennial College currently adopts a “Pay Tuition First” policy. Eligible students who have not remitted their tuition fees in full for the applicable semester will have their bursary first applied to any outstanding balance, and the remainder mailed via cheque.
