We love to see NBCC students following in their family member's footsteps. If you're an NBCC alumnus, and you have a family member (child, grandchild, or parent of an alum) currently enrolled in an NBCC program, they are eligible to apply for the NBCC Alumni Family Scholarship.

This Scholarship has been established to support and encourage the next wave of NBCC alumni members while giving back to the NBCC Alumni family. We are pleased to award four scholarships annually to family members of past NBCC graduates.

Four $1,000 NBCC Alumni Family Scholarships will be awarded to current NBCC Students each year.

NBCC Alumni provides these Scholarships as a benefit and a gesture of appreciation to our alumni and future alumni.

To be eligible for the Scholarship, applicants must:

  • Be the family member1 of an NBCC Alumni (family members of NBCC staff are not eligible);
  • Be enrolled in an NBCC program for the current academic year2, with a focus on their previous term grades;
  • Have demonstrated community/volunteer service;
  • Maintain good academic standing;
  • Submit their most recent NBCC term transcript;
  • Have a minimum of 85% average or higher on their most recent NBCC term transcript;
