Scholarships & Grants

Ken Dryden Scholarship
Each year Ken Dryden Scholarships are awarded to young people, currently or formerly in the care of the Canadian child welfare system. This scholarship is named after the man who got it started and who is determined to keep it going: Ken Dryden, author, consultant on education, child and youth issues, lawyer, former NHL hockey star, and past President of the Toronto Maple Leafs hockey club.

Apprenticeship Manitoba
Apprenticeship is a work based post-secondary training program that leads to a Certificate of Qualification in a skilled trade. Most trade programs take 2-4 years to complete and they combine approximately 80 percent paid-on-the job training with 20 percent technical training in the classroom. The province provides some programs that may assist with this process.

Red River College
Throughout the academic year, Red River College assists students by administering awards, bursaries and scholarships that have been donated by concerned corporations, community organizations and individuals. These awards cover the specific requests of the donors and are intended to assist students who have shown outstanding abilities in academic or vocational areas and/or are in need of financial assistance. For further information, please contact the appropriate academic department or one of the Student Service Centres, or call 204-632-2327.
