Twenty-one students in degree programs at Conestoga College are the recipients of more than $25,000 in entrance and academic achievement scholarships provided by a number of College and community donors.
Conestoga’s degree programs are four years in length. They are built upon an academic base that combines specific technical studies in the degree field, plus appropriate business and business management skills, and liberal studies courses. They are also built on an experiential base that combines theoretical studies with extensive project-based work and periods of co-op education employment.
Conestoga’s degree programs are in the areas of architectural management, advanced manufacturing technologies, teletronics (advanced computer and telecommunication technologies), health informatics management and international business management. Conestoga is also a full partner in a joint Bachelor of Science in Nursing program with McMaster University.
Most of these scholarships have gone to students who have completed the first semester of their first year at Conestoga, but several went to “bridging” students, who have already completed a college diploma or university degree and have gained entry into the first semester of the third year of these four-year baccalaureate programs.
