Awards & scholarships
As a prospective, ongoing or outgoing student, you may be eligible to receive a number of awards and scholarships. Some are exclusive to the department while others are open to all university students.
Financial assistance is equally available (usually on a first come first served basis) from the university and several external sources.
There are many opportunities to pursue awards and scholarships at Concordia University. It is your responsibility to conduct related research, but you should also feel free to speak to your advisors and professors. Beyond the monetary incentive, receiving an award or scholarship is a great portfolio-builder!
For additional information, please contact the Financial Aid and Awards Office.
