Students and Parents In this pamphlet you will find contacts, mailing addresses, applications and deadlines of various scholarships, bursaries and awards. This is a rough guide and it is impossible to keep all the information current. Remember: dates are often based on last year’s deadlines and can change from year to year.
Watch for memos and listen to announcements on various scholarships, bursaries and programs available. Many universities and colleges, businesses, and organizations offer scholarships, bursaries and awards that you may seek out through advertisements, word of mouth or the internet. The responsibility lies with you to investigate any and all avenues where these scholarships, bursaries and awards may be offered.
Many awards require a copy of your transcript, letters of recommendation/reference or an essay. Allow yourself and staff members time to prepare any of these requirements. Notes:
Often students who have an average of 80% or higher in Grade 11 and have maintained this average in the first semester of Grade 12 are automatically considered for scholarships to the university or college that they make application to (if institution offers these types of awards). This process usually takes place in February/March. Some universities have separate applications for entrance scholarships. So read carefully and be aware of due dates.
Students should make an appointment with the School Counsellor to assist in planning and applying to universities or colleges.
Also visit http://krhsweb.wordpress.com/ for scholarship, bursary and award information.
Other helpful sites are as follows:
Also visit http://www.edu.pe.ca/threeoaks and www.edu.pe.ca/gray. These sites also post available awards, which may be missing from this booklet.
Scholarships and awards that students accept will only be announced at the graduation ceremonies once the students has provided a letter from the institution confirming the award. Please bring in a copy of your offers to the school counselor.
It is imperative that students check the Scholarship/Bursary board at school regularly.
