Sheridan Black Student Bursary 

Sheridan’s new Strategic Plan entitled Sheridan 2024: Galvanizing Education for a Complex World codifies our institutional commitment to fostering equity, diversity and inclusion. Our goal is to create a community where everyone brings their full potential and experiences, knowing their unique contributions are valued.

On July 16, 2020, President and Vice Chancellor Dr. Janet Morrison signed the Black North Initiative CEO Pledge, committing Sheridan – alongside other leading Canadian institutions – to specific actions and targets designed to dismantle systemic anti-Black racism and create opportunities for underrepresented members of its community.

As an initial step, Sheridan has identified funds to support Black students with financial bursaries to help off-set the costs of their Sheridan education.

The bursary will be awarded based on financial need to Black students.

Recipients must also be Canadian citizens, permanent residents, or protected persons. This opportunity is open to new and returning Sheridan students and applicants to the Sheridan Continuing Education Bursary will be considered for this opportunity.
