Grade 12 Students:
In this pamphlet you will find contacts, mailing addresses, application criteria and deadlines of various scholarships, bursaries and awards. Please also watch for MEMOS and announcements on various scholarships on the email your provided as well as inside and outside Student Services. Many universities and colleges, businesses, and organizations offer scholarships, busaries and awards that you may seek out through advertisements, word of mouth, and the internet. The responsibility lies with you, the student, to investigate any and all avenues where these scholarships, bursaries and awards may be offered.
As mentioned, be sure to check the email you provided and the Scholarship Board in Student Services. These will give you all pertinent information regarding various awards. Please be aware of the “deadline” dates…these are very important. On average, the information arrives the month prior to when the scholarship/bursary is due.
As we approach the end of the school year, scholarhips, bursaries and awards start appearing quickly and often will have shorter deadline dates. Many of these may require a copy of your transcript, letters of recommendation, or perhaps an essay. Be sure to allow yourself and staff members time to prepare any of these requirements.
You are encouraged to read through this booklet and highlight any you may qualify for. If you are uncertain of any of the information, such as whether you meet the requirements, please just ask.
I wish you all the best in Grade 12!
