About our Awards

Once you are confirmed in a program at NSCC, you are encouraged to login to the Student Awards Portal. Here, you will find your awards account, which will display awards you may be eligible for as well as details on external awards and other financial support programs. Awards are added all the time, so check back often.
The majority of our awards are offered during our two main award cycles – Spring and Fall. If you are an incoming student, your eligibility to apply for awards depends on when your program begins. Refer to the following table for more details:
If your program starts in the fall… If your program starts in the winter…
