Awards and Scholarships

Awards and Scholarships Application Information

At George Brown College, our awards program provides financial support to eligible students in need. This financial support comes in the form of scholarships, awards and bursaries and looks at criteria like academic achievement, financial need, and community involvement.

Did you know?
You only need to fill out your student profile (basic information, budget and essays) once per academic year to be considered for several awards, such as College-Wide and Divisional awards. You can re-use the same student profile, however, you are required to re-submit the College-Wide awards application and Divisional awards application each term to be considered. Talk about a time-saver!
