Welcome to the 2021-2022 Olds College 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 user name and password to access the online application portal. Students must be enrolled in the current academic year to qualify.

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.

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.
