External awards submission process:

If you are an organization looking to send a scholarship or bursary for a St. Lawrence College student, please note that payment can be made by EFT, credit card over the phone, or by cheque to the following address:

St. Lawrence College
Attn: Alumni and Development Office
100 Portsmouth Avenue
Kingston, ON K7L 5A6

If you are providing the scholarship via EFT, please contact the Alumni and Development Office at development@sl.on.ca for the appropriate form.

Once we receive the funds, we will post the funds directly to the student’s tuition account under the name of your award title.

Please note that bursary funds must be reported by the student when filing a personal income tax filing, therefore a T4A will be issued at the end of the tax year from St. Lawrence College to the student (unless specified that the T4A it is being produced by the issuer of the bursary).

Note for students:

If you have a scholarship/bursary cheque from an external organization that is made out to St. Lawrence College, please send the cheque to the address above and ensure your student number and name are included.

Students who are OSAP recipients must report all monetary awards, scholarships, or bursaries received. If you are in receipt of OSAP this academic year, please contact your OSAP office immediately to have your application updated if you are the recipient of a bursary.
