Financial Awards 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.

Student Dress Code

Clothing should be suitable for a school learning environment. Clothing and footwear should be comfortable and appropriate for students to participate safely in all school activities including physical education, science, cooking, and shops. Clothing should demonstrate a respect for the school community and the B.C. Human Rights Code. For example, articles of clothing that promote direct or indirect messages or graphics referring to alcohol, drugs, gang culture, sex, weapons, violence, or profanity will not be permitted.

The School Community at Chilliwack Secondary is encouraged to act in a responsible and socially acceptable manner.  Our goal is to provide opportunities for the optimum learning experience for all our students and staff in a safe and comfortable learning environment.
