Establishing a Scholarship | St. Clair College

By establishing a scholarship with St. Clair College, you can support one or more of our 13,000 students on their post-secondary journey. Scholarships are awarded to deserving full-time students who have satisfactory academic standing and who meet any additional eligibility criteria.

The St. Clair College Foundation Board manages the general Scholarship program and is proud to award our students more than $500,000 annually through the generous contributions from our donors.

There are two types of awards which you can be establish:

An Endowment can be established where the funds are invested by the College Foundation and the earnings are used to provide scholarships to students in perpetuity. A minimum of $20,000 is required to establish a named scholarship.

An Annual award where a donor (company, organization or individual) provides funds each year to the college for a scholarship to be given in their name.

In either case, donors may request that certain criteria be established for their Scholarship.

For example, criteria may include:

  • Minimum Grade Point Average
  • Year of Study
  • Program Area
  • Canadian Resident
  • Community/College Involvement
  • Financial Aid

Applications are available for students to apply from October 1st to December 18th. Selections for all scholarships are made in mid-January. The selection committee is made up of faculty members from each area of study, staff from the Registrar's Office and staff from the Foundation Office.

Each year we honour our students and donors at our scholarship award ceremonies, donors are invited to attend, meet and present their scholarship(s) to the deserving students.
