Fees and funding

Student of the Year (SOTY)

All year long, staff and faculty at Stenberg College submit nominations of students who exemplify excellence in academics, leadership, attitude, community service and spirit.

In August, we face the difficult challenge of selecting one finalist from each program. Each program finalist will be interviewed, and from this group, one winner, a first runner-up, and a second runner-up will be selected.

The Student of the Year winner receives a full tuition reimbursement (up to CA$20,000), the first runner-up receives a CA$5,000 tuition reimbursement, and the second runner-up receives a CA$2,500 tuition reimbursement. All other program finalists receive a CA$1,000 tuition reimbursement.
