Rules and Conditions

Additional Information

Qualifying Educational Institutions

  1. Canadian universities and colleges that are members of or affiliated with a member of the Association of Universities and Colleges of Canada.
  2. Canadian community colleges, including institutes of technology and similar institutions supported and accredited by provincial governments.
  3. Canadian private institutions offering credited post-secondary courses that are transferable to other recognized institutions (1. and 2. above).
  4. Foreign post-secondary institutions, based on the following conditions:  Should the faculty recommend that a recipient take a year of their course at a foreign institution, the award will be payable only if the desired course program is not available at a Canadian post-secondary institution. Recipients should note that all other conditions of eligibility apply.

Required Documents

To be considered, the applicant must have completed a full year of studies and passed all courses during the academic year preceding its application for an award. A minimum overall average of 70% (or equivalent based on the institutions’ grading scale - GPA or R-score) is required to be eligible.
A full workload is the normal program load to be completed during a regular academic session to satisfy the normal timeframe for graduation.
Along with the Application Form, the student must submit the following documents:
  1. The official transcript for all studies undertaken in the previous academic year. A photo or scanned copy of the official transcript is accepted, but it must be clearly legible or the application will be rejected.
  2. Proof of registration to full time studies for the following academic year covered by the Program.

Qualifying Education Courses

The post-secondary program taken must be a minimum of two years of full-time studies, and courses taken must fulfill requirements for obtaining a recognized undergraduate degree, diploma or certificate. Not eligible are courses or programs offered by profit-making institutions, narrow career- or skill-oriented courses and apprentice type courses.

Method of Payment

An award is based on past achievement and tuition is paid for the next academic term. The award is paid directly to the student at the beginning of each academic year.  Because of the timing of required information, it is not always possible to pay the award to students before they need to pay their scholarship fees to their institution.  Please plan accordingly.

When to Apply

Applications should be made just prior to the academic year for which the award is applied for. Therefore, students should apply as soon as they are accepted by an institution or have registered at their chosen institution and an original transcript of their previous marks is available. Applications must be received before September 15th of the year for which a student applies for an award.

Qualifying Education Courses

Award recipients are responsible for ensuring they understand the required full workload for their particular program so they are eligible for awards. In addition to meeting the academic requirements of a program, recipients are expected to remain in good disciplinary standing in their institution. Notice of any changes of address, academic program, institution, and other pertinent information must be communicated immediately to the HR Development Coordinator.
Note:  An award is paid to assist in covering the costs of tuition and compulsory fees for full-time attendance at a college or university. If, for any reason, a recipient does not attend classes or withdraws from the institution, he must return the award to GIC, c/o HR Development Coordinator.
If a recipient has received an award for the upcoming year but decides to withdraw from the course before December 31st, and returns the full amount of the award, a deferral may be requested. Provided that the recipient is still within the time limitations and meets all other program criteria, this deferral would allow the winner of an award to reactivate the award based on his marks. Recipients who do not follow this process are withdrawn from the Higher Education Awards Program. They may only re-qualify after completing a full year of post-secondary education and achieving a minimum overall average of 70% (or equivalent based on the academic institutions’ grading system).
Management reserves the right to amend this Plan from time to time, or to repeal or terminate it entirely at any time.
