The Nicol Award is a national program designed to generate and reward interest in entrepreneurship on the part of undergraduate students in any faculty or field of study at participating universities across Canada. Launched in 1997, this program now awards over $100,000 in prize money each year to individual students or student teams who submit winning plans for their entrepreneurial business ideas.

The winning Brock team will receive a $5000 cash prize, the second place team receives $2000 and the third place team, $1000. The first-place team from each campus is then entered into the National Nicol competition.
