So, how do I make sure I get in on these?

  • First, make sure you complete and submit the Scholarship and Bursary Questionnaire, which is available through your myCentennial account. If you haven’t yet completed it, you could be losing out on opportunities to help fund your education.

  • Second, check your myCentennial emails to see if you have received notifications for these upcoming bursaries. Starting this week, student will begin receiving email notifications of available scholarships and/or bursaries.

How do I know if I’m eligible? When are they available? When is the deadline?

  • Only students who have completed the Scholarships and Bursaries Questionnaire and are deemed eligible will receive notifications of scholarships and bursaries as they become available

  • Application deadlines are included in the email notification and can also be found on the Fall Full-Time Bursaries and Centennial College Application Scholarships pages
