Our Opportunities

Welcome to the Georgian College Award, Scholarship and Bursary Homepage!
The winter cycle is now open! The winter cycle will close on Feb. 15.


Below you will find a listing of award, scholarship and bursary opportunities that are available to registered Georgian students with brief information about each opportunity and the qualifications. To apply to any award, scholarship or bursary opportunity which require an application you must be a registered student. Sign in using your Georgian credentials (student email and password) and you will then have the opportunity to complete the General Application. To sign in simply click the Sign In button located at the top right of this page.

The General Application will open prior to the start of each new academic year and will remain open for the duration of the academic year, until the end of the full application cycle. Award, scholarship and bursary opportunities are reviewed, and recipients are selected, at the end of each application cycle. The application cycles are Fall (August 15 – October 15), Winter (December 15 – February 15) and Summer (April 15 – June 15). Due to the high volume of applications received, only successful applicants will be notified by email. All notifications are sent to your Georgian student email account.

The majority of the award, scholarship and bursary opportunities offered by Georgian are auto-matched through the General Application and you may not be required to complete any further applications. If you are eligible for additional opportunities that require supplemental information, these will display for you once you have completed and submitted the General Application. These are identified as Recommended Opportunities.

Many of our award, scholarship and bursary opportunities are funded through the generosity of donors within our communities. Be advised that all funding is subject to receipt from donor.

For optimal compatibility, access the application system using any newer browser, e.g. Microsoft Edge, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox or Apple Safari.
