To be eligible for an Access award, you must have been enrolled in an Access program or course for at least one semester during May 1–April 30. Check award descriptions for criteria and application details. Indigenous students may be eligible for Indigenous Education & Community Connections awards in addition to School of Access awards.
You are welcome to apply for more than one award, but please complete a separate online application for each one. Be sure to review the award criteria carefully and include all the necessary essays or references.
Award values vary from year to year but can typically be anywhere between $150–$1,000 each.
