 Academic Scholarships
In order to better recognise academic excellence within each subject area in each major term (Fall, Winter, Spring), we have established a set of academic scholarships to be awarded to the strongest students within each discipline.

The selection criteria and other relevant information are as follows:

  • Total Value, Per Year: $20,000

Five scholarships, each worth $1300, are awarded each major term (i.e., not for summer), to continue each year until otherwise decided by the Operations Committee. The scholarships will be in the form of a tuition credit unless the student has no upcoming tuition payments (e.g., transferring in the subsequent term); in such cases, the student will be provided with a cheque for the scholarship amount.

Selection Criteria: Each recipient must meet all the following criteria:

  • Exhibit academic excellence within the respective subject area;
  • Exhibit a strong attendance record within the respective subject area;
  • Have at least a CPGA of 2.67 in a minimum of 9 credits.

No student can win more than one academic scholarship in the same term.
Subject Rotations: To ensure that all subject areas are represented, AC’s 15 subject areas will each award one scholarship per academic year.
