NEW for Winter '21: Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Scholarship

Mohawk College Foundation recently established the Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI) scholarship with a gift from Mohawk College. The intent of this scholarship is to raise awareness of the EDI program and to support students who have encountered lived experiences concerning systemic barriers to equitable access to resources, programs, and opportunities.

The application window is NOW OPEN and will close on January 19, 2021.

Students can apply in two steps:

1) Fill out the Student Award application form for Financial Assistance on MyMohawk

2) Students must prepare a letter (maximum 2 pages) about what EDI means to them and a personal experience with systemic barriers. This can include any situation where you felt that your ethnicity, gender identity, gender expression, socio-economic status, sexual orientation, age, sex, or dis/Ability (invisible or visible), religion, or creed, has been a barrier to participating in something such as employment, education, sports, recreation, and extra-curricular activities.

This must be sent to EDIscholarship [at] mohawkcollege.ca in addition to filling out the Financial Assistance form in step 1 to be considered for the scholarship.

This new award is just one of the ways Mohawk is demonstrating a commitment to building an inclusive, welcoming, and supportive environment.
