Here at the Assiniboine Community College Students’ Association, we endeavor to connect students with the resources that make student life a stress free experience. This includes ensuring students know that there are financial resources such as awards, scholarships and bursaries available to them through our association, the college or other external sources.

Key words Definition:

  • Awards are usually given in recognition of school or community involvement and academic achievement.
  • Scholarships are usually given based on academic achievement.
  • Bursaries are usually given based on demonstrated financial need.

ACCSA Awards

The student association offers several awards every year to students who have demonstrated outstanding engagement within the school and wider community. Students have the opportunity to nominate candidates that they deem to be eligible for an award, then the recipient is chosen by the selection committee. Awards are presented at the annual Student Achievements Award Ceremony in the spring and graduation ceremonies in the summer. Check out these awards!

Pat was famous for her smile, laugh and instant friendships. She lived a life of skating, organizing, and managing, but always with a personal touch. Her values, beliefs and ethics were a model for many. For detailed criteria please follow the link below:
