The Community Contribution Awards


The Community Contribution Awards represent recognition for contribution to the University or the community-at-large. To be eligible for consideration for a Community Contribution Award, students must be enrolled in Level II, III, IV or V of a first or second baccalaureate program. Eligible candidates must be enrolled and in good standing as a student of McMaster University.

A student may receive only one Community Contribution Award per year, but may be considered for the same or a different award the following year.

These awards have no monetary benefit but a notation will appear on the student’s transcript. The recipient of a Community Contribution Award may be eligible to receive the corresponding donor bursary if financial need is demonstrated. Further information on our bursary program can be found at http://sfas.mcmaster.ca.
