Scholarships

Scholarships, Awards and Bursaries are available for a variety of criteria, including academic excellence, financial need, leadership, community involvement and much more.  There are literally thousands of scholarships available. You may want to start with the links in the Scholarship Resources table below. Then see the list beneath the table to check out scholarship links for your school as well as the broader area scholarship categories. Note that there are WAY too many scholarships for us to keep track of here. Students who take the time to do lots of research will find many opportunities to apply for scholarships.

If you need help filling out Post Secondary or Scholarship applications - go see the Career Counselor or Administrator in your school.
