 “I am overwhelmed by the generosity you have shown me by supporting an award. As a mature student it took a lot of hard work and dedication to achieve the grades I did, and to be recognized for my efforts is a feeling I can’t describe.  Your generosity has inspired me to help others and give back to the community” - Student Recipient, 2015


Student Awards' Program

Students are at the heart of all we do and Mohawk College wants to ensure that all students have the financial means to complete their academic journey.  To facilitate this success, the Foundation works with community partners to offer student awards in the form of scholarships and bursaries. 

Type of Award Description of Award


Recognize students based on academic merit
Bursaries Available to students with proven financial need
Support Funds Allocated at the discretion of the program

Establishing an Award

Student awards can be annually funded or created in the form of an endowment where the capital, (the gift), is retained and only the interest is used to fund your award each year.  By selecting one of these options, you will help to transform the life of a student here at Mohawk College.

Type of Award Description of Award
Annual Awards A minimum annual gift of $500 with a preferred commitment of five years. 
Endowed Awards Gifts to the Endowment Fund are invested by Mohawk College
and the annual interest funds a scholarship or bursary each
year. A minimum gift of $25,000 provides $625 each year to
assist a student.
