Georgian offers 30 entrance scholarships to Business – Entrepreneurship students
Georgian College is offering $1,000 scholarships to the first 30 students who enrol in the Business – Entrepreneurship program at the Barrie Campus. These entrance scholarships are open to full-time students who register for the 2015 winter semester. Students must simply meet admission requirements and confirm registration to receive the award. The scholarships will be paid to students who are still enrolled after the add/drop date.
“This large, one-time offering of 30 entrance scholarships to students in the Business – Entrepreneurship program is a way to help accelerate learning and success,” says Lisa Banks, Vice President, Communications, Marketing and External Relations. “Georgian is committed to developing and implementing programs that assist with student enrolment and retention.”
Entrance scholarships are financed through various fundraising events such as the Georgian Golf Classic and the Georgian Dream Gala, held Nov. 7 at Casino Rama.

Unfortunately there aren’t awards available for every program. However we do have “open” awards that are open to students in any program. To search for these, select “awards open to all programs” under the program listing on the search page. You can narrow this search down by selecting your level of study, academic area or even campus.
The awards and scholarships website is constantly being updated. There are new awards with new expiry dates being listed all the time so be sure to check this website regularly. Don’t procrastinate, because you might miss a deadline!
It is always a great time to start putting together your documents for awards and scholarships. Typically you will be asked to provide the following: letter of reference, resumé, grade reports and cover letter. It is a really good idea to be prepared in advance because the perfect opportunity might arise for you at any time.
Small details can make a big difference in whether or not your application stands out.
- Make sure your reference letters and resumé are of the same quality that you would use to land a job interview.
- Write clearly. Be concise. Check spelling. Ask a peer or superior to proofread all of your documents.
- Make certain your application and documentation address the specific requirements of the award.
- Ensure you have provided all of the requested information and attach all documents required to your application. Leaving off pertinent information by accident can result in disqualification.
The amount of time and energy you put into searching out and applying for awards and scholarships is up to you. However, the more effort you make, the better your chances of becoming a winner. And most importantly, don’t get discouraged if you don’t win. Make the strongest case you can, and simply try again.
