Criteria

For students starting Douglas in the Fall 2022 semester and are coming from high school or another post-secondary institution, you may be eligible for an Entrance Scholarship or Award.

Awards generally acknowledge outstanding achievements or contributions to the community or a combination of merit achievements with a demonstrated financial need.

Scholarships Douglas College scholarships recognize and support the outstanding academic achievement of our students. Other factors for scholarships, such as your Douglas College program, community involvement and/or financial need, could also be required or considered when making selections.
