Student awards

Students are at the heart of Yukon College and are an integral part of Yukon’s future. Through donor-funded support to student awards, the Foundation has committed to increasing student access for those with financial need and rewarding outstanding achievement.

Awards can be based on academic or personal achievement, financial need, or a combination of the two, along with other specialized criteria. We will work with you to tailor selection criteria that reflect your objectives and interests.

To see examples of current donor-funded scholarships and bursaries, please visit our Awards page.

Naming an award
Establishing a named scholarship or bursary is a meaningful way to honour a loved one, commemorate a special occasion or create a legacy. There are two methods of funding a named award:

  • Endowed award: Donors can create a permanent endowment where the initial donation is invested in perpetuity and the award is funded annually with the interest income generated. To create an endowment, a minimum gift of $10,000 is required, which can be paid over five years.
  • Annual award: You may choose to make an annual gift in the amount of your award. A minimum annual gift of $500 is required, and must be pledged for at least three years.

Please contact us to discuss your intention to create a student award.
