Academic Awards and Scholarships
Scholarships, Awards and Bursaries
In 2011-2012 Sheridan awarded more than 7,000 Scholarships, Awards and Bursaries for a total of over $5.2 million in financial assistance to Sheridan students.
These awards are available to students enrolled full-time in their program of study. Scholarships are awarded based on criteria that may include academic achievement, community involvement, demonstrated leadership skills and financial need. Bursaries are awarded based primarily on financial need although academic achievement and community involvement may be considered. The eligibility criteria vary for each award. In addition, external awards are available from sources outside Sheridan which may include corporate, private or community organizations.
We thank our generous donors for making these opportunities possible!
Awards are considered part of a student’s taxable income for the year. The college will issue T4A forms to all recipients in the spring of the year following the year in which the award was paid.
Sheridan presents over 600 Academic Awards to students demonstrating outstanding academic achievement. Faculty members nominate students for these awards which are presented annually at an awards ceremony. Students are notified by their faculty if they have been chosen as the recipient of an academic award.
