College of the Rockies Financial Assistance and Awards Advisor Lois Murray reminds first-year students to get their applications in for entrance awards.

The deadline is quickly approaching for College of the Rockies’ Entrance Awards. Over $50,000 in entrance awards are available to first-year students entering full-time programs at College of the Rockies. Application deadline for many awards is April 15.

Scholarships and bursaries range from $500 tuition awards up to two-year full tuition scholarships with an approximate value of $7,000.  Some awards are presented based on grade-point-average while others are granted based solely on financial need. Awards are also available for specific program areas including engineering, business administration, culinary arts and trades.

Three new awards are also available this year for students entering the Practical Nursing Diploma program, the Engineering Certificate program or University Studies Arts or Sciences. New students can also apply for two Career and Job Fair Entrance Awards of $1,500 each.

College of the Rockies’ Financial Assistance and Awards Advisor Lois Murray says, “This is an excellent opportunity for students to alleviate some of the financial burden of attending post-secondary and to gain the freedom to focus on what is most important, doing well in classes and enjoying the College of the Rockies experience.”

Application forms and a complete list of awards and deadlines are available at cotr.ca/financialaid.  For more information, contact Lois Murray at 250-489-2751 ext. 3508 or murray@cotr.bc.ca.
