Okanagan College President’s
 Entrance Scholarships – 2022

We are continuing to have students apply for the President’s Entrance Scholarship online on our website and students can start to apply on their myOkanagan site as soon as they have received their ID number. Principals will still need to submit the appraisal, however, it can now be emailed by the school or the student to ac.cb.naganako@sdrawa.

Principal’s Written Appraisal (Word or PDF format on school letterhead):

Provide specific details pertaining to all attributes of a well-rounded nominee: demonstrated leadership, contribution to the school and community through sports, culture, voluntary service and/or other extra-curricular activities, and scholastic achievement. The members of the adjudication committee rely heavily upon the information provided to them by the Principal (or designate), and the quality and accuracy of this appraisal is very important to the nominee’s application.

Please note: Formerly there was a 2% nomination limit however, this has been eliminated. 


Applicants must meet the following criteria:

  •       be Canadian citizens or permanent residents;
  •       have graduated from a secondary school in the Okanagan College region within the last fifteen months (as of September 2022) and have not subsequently attended post- secondary studies at a college or university;
    •       have demonstrated leadership and made a contribution to their school and community; and
  •       have a minimum cumulative grade average of 76% (B+), based on all grade 11 and 12 courses.

Financial Aid & Awards must receive the student’s online application package, Interim Transcript as well as the Principal's written appraisal, no later than 4:00 pm on March 11, 2022.
