Scholarships, Bursaries, and Awards
We encourage students to apply for as may scholarships as possible to help reduce the costs of post-secondary. There are countless scholarships available to students and unfortunately, many go unclaimed because students don't apply. A great way to find scholarships is to sign up to www.scholarshipscanada.com and receive free information about scholarships that students qualify for.
Scholarship opportunities can be found in many different places. Looking for scholarships offered by institutions where students wish to apply is usually a good starting point. Students coming out of high school are eligible for early enrollment scholarships or scholarships pertaining to their area of interest.
