What do I do if my professor wants to send my recommendation letter independently of my submission?
Please have your professor or advisor send their recommendation to email@example.com (English) or firstname.lastname@example.org (French) and ensure they put Recommendation Letter for (Insert Your Name) in the subject line.
My official transcripts won’t be available by the deadline – can I send unofficial ones?
If you will not have current official transcripts available by the submission deadline date, please send us your unofficial transcripts. If you have been accepted into a post-graduate program and do not yet have transcripts, please send us a copy of your undergraduate transcripts along with your letter of acceptance to the program.
How will I know you received my submission?
Please provide us with your submission in one PDF document (maximum file size of 2 MB. Please use a low-resolution for your scanned documents). If you are having trouble downloading your files into one PDF document, please provide it to us in 4 separate files noting which is the cover letter, resume, transcripts and recommendation letter. Once your submission has been received, we will send you an email confirmation.
When will we know if we’ve been selected for the award? Why haven’t I heard from anyone about an interview?
Unfortunately, due to the high volume of applications we receive, we will only contact those candidates we would like to interview.
What if the program I am enrolled in isn’t business related? Would I still qualify for the scholarship?
National Bank Financial Markets values diversity which includes people with diverse educational backgrounds. Although business students certainly qualify for the scholarship, students that are not in traditional business streams are also considered eligible if they are interested in pursuing a career in capital markets.
