School of Nursing Awards

To be considered for any of the awards listed below students must apply by selecting In-Course Scholarships through the GBC Awards and be enrolled full-time in a School of Nursing Program.

The volatility of economic markets may cause George Brown College to suspend individual awards for the upcoming academic year. We are continuing to work to expand our awards program and to ensure that all of the listed awards are available each year to help students.

If you have any questions about individual awards or the application process, please contact us at awards@georgebrown.ca.
