Scholarships

PARENTS & STUDENTS

The money is out there for Post-Secondary, however, it takes time and effort to apply, write the letters, and most of all, research!  From a Counsellor point of view, the grade 12s are a very busy group.  They have diploma courses, extra-curricular activities, and their "futures" to worry about.  Parents often ask "what can I do to help?"  I would like to suggest that assistance with scholarship applications would help them (and you) financially!  They should put together a list of their volunteer efforts over the years along with extra-curricular accomplishments.  This will be given to their teachers for their reference letters.  They should be researching on any of the below sites. Any scholarship has a "due date", put scholarship applications in order of these dates and put it on the calendar or they will forget to apply!  My shortlist of scholarships is as follows:
