Awards, Bursaries, and Scholarships

Awards generally acknowledge outstanding achievements or contributions to the community or a combination of merit achievements with a demonstrated financial need.

Bursaries are non-repayable funds awarded to eligible students who apply and demonstrate financial need. Bursaries are a supplemental source of funding, and should not be treated as a primary source of funding while attending Douglas College. Please note, that due to the high volume of applications received each term, payment of funds may not occur until the middle of the term of application.  We encourage you to plan accordingly. 

Scholarships Douglas College scholarships recognize and support the outstanding academic achievement of our students. Other factors for scholarships, such as your Douglas College program, community involvement and/or financial need, could also be required or considered when making selections. For awards that have a GPA requirement, the selection committee(s) will consider overall GPA unless otherwise stated for individual scholarships.
