All Holland College applicants and students are eligible to apply for scholarships, bursaries and awards. Through the generosity of donors, hundreds of students benefit annually from awards that collectively exceed $500,000.
To apply for an entrance award, you will need to have an active Holland College application. Enrolled awards are for students currently studying at Holland College. Many awards only require the general application for consideration, but some will ask you for additional information such as a transcript, biography, or a description of your extracurricular involvement. All required documents need to be submitted as PDFs.
Award applications from students planning to begin to their studies in September 2023 can be submitted from January 19 to March 31, 2023. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you need more information.
Based on your general awards application and Holland College student data, you will be matched automatically to all the awards you meet the criteria for and your application will be submitted for them.
You will also receive recommendations for additional award opportunities that may require more information, such as a biography, essay, or transcript. Look through these recommendations and apply for any for which you are eligible.
