Who We Are
The St. Clair College Foundation serves as the primary fundraising body for the College’s general scholarship program. As a registered charitable organization, the St. Clair College Foundation is guided by a volunteer Board of Directors who strive to assist St. Clair College in achieving its vision of "excellence in all we do" while generating philanthropic support for students and their academic pursuits.
With the generous support of our donors, the St. Clair College Foundation provides students with more than $500,000 annually in scholarship awards. Full-time students have access to more than $3 million in financial support through the College’s scholarship, bursary, and award programs.
About Our Scholarship Program
The St. Clair College scholarship program was created to support the academic pursuits of our students with financial aid. Scholarships are available to full-time students who have a satisfactory academic standing (minimum Grade Point Average of 2.0 or higher) and meet any additionally outlined eligibility criteria as requested by our donors.
At St. Clair College, we strive to make education accessible for all students. To ensure scholarships are awarded to the best possible candidate(s), we proudly work with faculty and college staff to match students through our selection committees. Students can access our internal scholarship application starting October 1st of each year and have until mid-December to complete their submission.
Scholarships are presented to their recipients in February/March of each year, thanks to the generosity of our donors. Each year we honour our students and donors at our scholarship award ceremonies, donors are invited to attend, meet, and present their scholarship(s) to the deserving students.
Types of Scholarships
Interested donors are encouraged to connect with the Advancement Office at St. Clair College to discuss establishing a scholarship. By establishing a scholarship with St. Clair College, you can support one or more of our 13,000 students on their post-secondary journey.
There are two types of awards which you 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 $20,000 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.
