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.  Eligibility for community-based financial awards offered through the Chilliwack School District Awards Program is based on School of Record. The School of Record (SOR) is defined as the school at which the student receives the majority (50% or more) of their current educational program. 
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.
