For the first time in its history, the College of New Caledonia (CNC) will be offering entrance awards to students this fall.

As part of the college’s upcoming 50th anniversary celebrations, CNC has dedicated $100,000 towards 94 student entrance awards for the 2019-20 academic year.

“This is the first in a series of initiatives celebrating CNC’s 50th anniversary during the 2019-20 academic year,” CNC president Henry Reiser says in a press release. “We strive to better serve the communities in our region, and these entrance awards will help more students access post-secondary education.”

Domestic students who apply for credentialed programs at any of CNC’s six campuses during the commemorative 50th year – fall 2019 and spring 2020 semesters – will automatically be entered for a chance to receive an entrance award.

There are 79 awards divided among CNC’s programs in health sciences, community and continuing education, trades, business, human services, and university transfer.

CNC is also offering 15 general entrance awards, with five dedicated to international students, five for Aboriginal students and five for non-Aboriginal domestic students.

“What better way to celebrate 50 years of CNC than by thanking our students and making it easier for them to attend college,” says Chad Thompson, CNC’s vice-president academic. “These entrance awards were designed to recognize the diversity of our students, our programs and our communities.”

The entrance award deadline is March 17 at 11:59 p.m. Students who have already applied for the fall 2019 fall or spring 2020 semester will automatically be entered for a chance to receive an award.
