Did you know that applicants entering NSCC directly from a Nova Scotia high school can apply to have their first year tuition paid with an Entrance Award?  NSCC offers 26 entrance awards (two per campus) to recognize outstanding students entering an NSCC certificate or diploma program directly from a Nova Scotia high school in September 2020. These awards financially support students who demonstrate outstanding leadership in their communities as well as academic achievement.  You apply online and the application due date is March 20th.

The Cape Breton University Scholarship Application is now live on the university’s website.  The application will be used to award entrance scholarships and bursaries. Scholarships are based on academic achievement and bursaries on financial need.  For those students who have already received notification of their eligible scholarship range through their acceptance letter, we  encourage them to fill it out as it will increase their eligibility for some additional endowed scholarships.\
