CNC Celebrates New 50th Anniversary Entrance Awards

As part of its upcoming 50th-anniversary celebrations, the College of New Caledonia (CNC) has dedicated $100,000 towards 94 student entrance awards for the 2019/2020 academic year. This is the first time in its history that entrance awards have been offered at CNC.

“This is the first in a series of initiatives celebrating CNC’s 50th anniversary during the 2019/2020 academic year,” said CNC President Henry Reiser. “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 program 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,” said CNC Vice President Academic Chad Thompson. “These entrance awards were designed to recognize the diversity of our students, our programs, and our communities.”

The entrance award deadline is 11:59 p.m. on March 17, 2019. 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.
