NLC Student Awards Application

Great News for Students!
The Prime Minister has announced $9 billion in new funding for post-secondary students as part of the Government of Canada’s COVID-19 response. Information on eligibility and the application process will be released by the Government of Canada in the coming weeks. Read the news release.

The Canada Emergency Student Benefit (CESB) provides financial support to post-secondary students, and recent post-secondary and high school graduates who are unable to find work due to COVID-19. Questions like "Who can apply?" and "How much can you get?" are all answered on the Government's website.

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​We understand that funding your post-secondary education can be a challenge. Through the generosity of many individuals, companies, and associations, we are proud to offer a number of financial awards to our students. Awards may be given based on financial need, academic achievement, community involvement, leadership or extra-curricular activities. The award may also be a combination of a scholarship, bursary or a prize.
