Establishing a Scholarship | St. Clair College

The St. Clair College Foundation Board manages the general Scholarship program for St. Clair College.

There are two types of awards which can be established:

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 16th. 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.

Donors are invited to attend a presentation ceremony in February to meet and present their scholarship(s) to the students.
