Awards and Scholarships
The following links provides helpful information:
Most local scholarships and bursaries are awarded by a committee at the end of the school year. Local businesses and organizations have their own requirements and standards for a student to qualify. Many local scholarships and bursaries do not require student application, however your name must be on the intentions list that is created by the Career Guidance Counsellor to be considered for the local scholarships/bursaries. In order to have your name on this list you must indicate which post secondary institution you have applied to and you must give a copy of the conditional acceptance letter to the guidance counsellor before the beginning of June.
