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.
The best time to plan for scholarships is in Grade 11. Many scholarships are based on leadership and/or community involvement. If your scholarship deadline is an early one, your contribution will be assessed based on your activates in Grade 11. Additionally, some scholarships review Grade 11 marks, if Grade 12 marks are not finalized.
Grade 12 students need to begin serious scholarship research right at the beginning of their Grade 12 school year, as some of the larger scholarships such as the Loran and the Schulich, have early deadlines.
If you need help filling out Post Secondary or Scholarship applications - go see the Career Counselor or Administrator in your school.
