The ACCSA believes the student experience goes beyond the classroom.
The ACCSA awards are open to bridging and/or graduating Assiniboine students. They include the ACCSA Pat Josephson Memorial Award, ACCSA Leadership Award, and the ACCSA & Houston’s Student Life Award.
“Students who are successful in being selected for our awards are academically strong, and are generally highly involved in their studies and extracurricular activities. Some examples of extracurricular activities are involvement in Student Clubs, the ACCSA Council, Cougars, Peer Mentoring or Tutoring, or involvement in other College activities,” said May.
You can learn more about these awards on our Awards page. You can apply for the awards on Assiniboine’s Scholarships & Bursaries page, which also hosts an abundance of other awards, scholarships and bursaries available to Assiniboine students.
“The number one goal of Assiniboine Community College is to promote student success. It is that goal that drives our academic planning,” said Michelle Atamanchuk, Development Officer, ACC Foundation, in an email thanking the Students’ Association for supporting the awards program.
In a survey Assiniboine hosted to gather feedback from recent students, they were able to see:
- 92 percent of graduates have jobs within 9 months of graduation.
- 82 percent of graduates are working in a career related to their studies.
- 89 percent of Assiniboine graduates stay in Manitoba.
The scholarships, awards, and bursaries program through the ACC Foundation has helped many of these students achieve this success, and the ACC Students’ Association is happy to support three of these awards through our organization.
