Scholarship Information

Scholarships 101
There is a lot of information out there about Scholarships and Bursary’s. Sometimes it can be overwhelming and confusing to navigate all the different kinds.   I have broken down Scholarships and Bursary’s into four main sections.  They are listed below and each one will guide you to a more detailed page.
Provincial Scholarships
The program’s purpose has been revised as follows: to recognize student achievement and encourage students to pursue post-secondary education. Under the revised program, all scholarships will be vouchers to be used upon registration and payment of tuition at a designated post-secondary institution.
Financial Awards
These are donated from groups/organizations in your community.  The Internals are decided upon by a group of teachers, counselors, and administrators at the school level.  The Externals are decided upon by the donating group or organization.   
On-line Scholarships
These are scholarships  that are offered and advertised on-line.  There are many sites that do this.  I have listed a few of the main ones. Deadlines vary and may be as early as October. Be careful to read the fine print.
Post-Secondary Institution Scholarships
Most Post-Secondary schools have Scholarship Programs. It depends on the specific Institution but the majority offer an Entrance and a Guaranteed Scholarship. Look carefully at deadlines and amounts as they vary.
