We understand that financial issues can impact directly on your studies; therefore, financial planning is an important part of assuring academic success at University.  We can provide you with the information and support that you need.

Scholarships

When you apply for admission to NSCAD by the early deadline of March 1, you are automatically considered for Entrance Scholarships. The current range of individual entrance scholarships is $500 to $6000 and some awards are renewable for each of four years of study, making our top award approximately $25000! After each year of study at NSCAD, more scholarships will be available for application by qualified students.

The university awards about $100,000 annually to students, with more than 90 internal scholarships and bursaries available per academic year. External funding can also top $100,000 per year, with outside scholarships such as the Harrison McCain Scholarships in memory of Marion McCain, the Canada Graduate Awards, and other financial aid options.
