Financial Awards

We can help you achieve your educational goals. A lack of financial support can be a barrier. Yukon College and our donors understand the value of an education. That's why we offer several financial awards to help support your educational and living costs. There are three types of awards:

Scholarship: A scholarship is given in recognition of academic excellence.

Bursary: A bursary is given based on demonstrated financial need.

Award: An award is a general category that may include a number of criteria such as community contributions, leadership, extra-curricular activities, academic achievement or financial need, among others.

All applicants must have a minimum GPA of 2.0.

To learn more about an award and see whether you are eligible to apply, click on the award name. Each award has different criteria.

How to apply

To apply for any award or for multiple awards, there is a single application and waiver. Students will complete ONE application and waiver, identify the awards to which they are applying, and submit any additional application materials separately.

CHECK BACK FREQUENTLY! New awards are frequently added to this page.

Applications can be submitted in person at the Student Services Centre, Ayamdigut Campus, or electronically to For more information please contact the Student Services Centre at 867.668.8720.
