Awards & scholarships

Institute for Co-operative Education students are among the most exceptional students on campus — and we know how hard they work. The Institute offers several awards and scholarships that recognize student achievement, by giving a little extra financial support.

Every spring, the Institute hosts CARE, our annual recognition event celebrating those students and employers who go the extra mile!

We are grateful to our generous donors who have created awards to recognize achievement and honour a loved one. The Chenfeng Huang Memorial Scholarship was created by the Institute team to honour their beloved former associate director. The Bergeron Family Undergraduate Co-op Scholarship was created by Lynn Bergeron, a retired member of the Institute staff, and Marc Bergeron, a Concordia BFA alumnus, in memory of their aunt Mme Françoise Laurette Presseau. If you would like to support the next generation of Institute students by creating an award in honour of a loved one, please reach out to the Institute team.

In addition to our Institute awards, we often nominate exceptional students for External awards.
