Each year, more and more students require financial assistance to realize their dreams. More than 70% of Sheridan students seek some form of financial support while attending Sheridan.
Scholarships are merit-based awards designed to offset tuition expenses for top-performing students. They provide incentives to be academically successful and encourage learners to work hard. Sheridan is in need of more funding to support entrance scholarships to help attract the best students to our classrooms, reward academic excellence and to create dynamic learning environments.
Scholarships also offset costs for students who fall in the gap between high and low income households.
Bursaries provide funding for students with financial need. Research shows that work can take up more than 15 hours per week and becomes an impediment to academic success. For many students the stresses of working make it difficult for them to graduate on time, or graduate with the high grades they have the potential to achieve. For other students, the work/study life is unsustainable, and they discontinue their studies all together.
Scholarships and bursaries make education accessible to everyone and help students reach graduation. Both types of awards can lesson student loan burdens, while at the same time, help to create a philanthropic community that encourages award recipients to give back once they graduate and succeed in their chosen career.
Donors are celebrated with a listing in the annual Convocation Guide as well as on the annual donor wall at all Sheridan Campuses and on the Sheridan website. Contributions of $1,000 or greater receive a named award posted on the scholarship and bursary opportunities page on the Sheridan website. Donors are informed of the name and brief bio of the student receiving their award.
A tax receipt is issued where allowable.
