With up to $100,000 in full-tuition awards available annually for students entering an eligible advanced diploma program, the Elevate Award for Post-Graduate Programs is the only award of its kind at Assiniboine Community College. This full-tuition award is dedicated to supporting university or college graduates looking to enhance their professional skill sets.
Advanced diplomas equip individuals with specialized expertise, which they can utilize to re-enter their respective industries with a fresh perspective or improve their chances of securing employment in a specific profession.
Within the award, there are both scholarships and bursaries available. Scholarships are based on merit (e.g. academics and essay questions), and bursaries are based on financial need. Students can apply for both the scholarship and bursary. However, you can only receive one full-tuition award.
