Awards, Bursaries and Scholarships

How to fund your post-secondary education can be a daunting prospect. Your school's guidance staff can identify what resources are available and help you prepare your applications.

Most people feel that scholarships are awarded for those students with the highest marks; however, your community involvement, extra-curriculars, sporting, art contributions, family background, and part time employment all come into play when looking for scholarships. Applying for scholarships is a large task and should be started early in your secondary career.
