Scholarships for business students

A class of students studying at the Pickering site.

 

Most college students need financial assistance. Between loans like OSAP and part-time jobs, acquiring income can be stressful with your full-time studies. Wouldn’t it be great if you can receive extra money to put towards your education? This is where scholarships come in.

Scholarships are rewards for students who attain high academic achievement and other criteria, specific to each award. Although some part-time scholarships exist, most of them are available exclusively for full-time students. There are specific scholarships for first-year students, students in their final year, and those who has demonstrated a financial need. Centennial College has a full listing of college-wide scholarships, athletic scholarships, and scholarships for each school.

The School of Business offers its students application-based and academic-based scholarships. Application-based scholarships require students to complete an application, usually requiring an essay and a letter of reference. Academic-based scholarships do not require an application as recipients are chosen based on a certain criteria and are chosen by the Dean, with some requiring a nomination. Some SOB scholarships are offered to all business students, while some are targeted to students in a specific discipline. Below are some examples:
