Durham College (DC) awards $3 million annually for student financial aid.  We are proud to meet the needs of all eligible students who request assistance through our comprehensive bursary program.

We are also proud to recognize academic excellence through our in-course scholarship program. Our goal is to provide $1,000 annually to the top academic performer in each program and $500 to the student with the second highest grade point average. A full list can be found in the Donor Awards webpage.
