Student Awards And Financial Aid


Red River College assists students by administering awards, bursaries, and scholarships that have been donated by concerned corporations, community organizations and individuals. These awards cover the specific requests of the donors and are intended to assist students who have shown outstanding abilities in academic or vocational areas and/or are in need of financial assistance.

For the most part, these awards, bursaries, and scholarships are available specifically to Red River College students. Descriptions include pre-requisite criteria and application instructions.
