SCHOLARSHIPS

LOCAL SCHOLARSHIP APPLICATIONS
Local scholarship packages will be mailed out on February 23rd to Grade 12 students.  This package contains a list of available scholarships and general instructions for applying.  Students are encouraged to apply for all scholarships they may be eligible for.  Don’t assume that the scholarships are exclusively for the top academic students — ANY graduate planning to further his/her education can apply.

We would like to encourage students to turn in the applications to the school office before the DEADLINE of April 4th, 2018 at 4:00 PM.  There will be no extensions of the deadline. When students bring in their applications, they must bring in the list of scholarships as well.  One of the secretaries will go through the student’s package of applications and have the student initial the list for the ones they have brought in.  This list is then kept in the office as a record of what was handed in.  Please do not bring in applications in envelopes as they will have to be taken out.
