Support from External Organizations
One way to offset the cost of post-secondary education is through scholarships and bursaries which is money that you can be awarded based on your academic excellence, community involvement and or/financial need. Most of these you will need to do some leg work and prepare an application.
Deadlines and information on different scholarships and bursaries available will trickle in throughout the year. Get started now to prepare your application. Many require the same type of information and prep work: resumes, personal statements describing your community and extra-curricular involvement, reference letters, proof of community service, etc. To find out more information about the different scholarships and bursaries available, you can check the links on this website or the bulletin board outside Student Services.
