Our Opportunities

Welcome to the Olds College Internal Student Awards Directory!

Thanks to our industry partners, alumni, and friends of Olds College we are fortunate to offer a generous student awards program to students.

Below you will find a listing of student awards available with a brief description of the scholarship qualifications. To apply, please sign in with your Olds College email username and password to access the online application portal. Students must be enrolled in the current academic year to qualify.

Internal Automatch Awards
Once you submit your general application, you will be auto-matched with scholarships you may qualify for however, this is not a guarantee of a scholarship. These automatch scholarships will be listed as “None” under the Action column meaning no further action is required on your part.

Internal Recommended Awards
You may be a good candidate for a scholarship but more information is required. "Apply” will appear under the Action column. Complete the additional tasks to be considered.

External Awards (not administered by Olds College, apply directly to the award provider)
These types of awards are open to any post-secondary student (not just Olds College), but offer some excellent opportunities! Search by keyword to find awards that you may be eligible for. Awards have varying criteria, eligibility requirements and deadlines.

Please Note: All students that apply are not guaranteed awards.
Follow up! Log in often to view any new awards that you may qualify for, check on pending tasks or notifications.
