Establishing A Scholarship
St Clair College Foundation

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 $10,000 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.
