Local Scholarships
April 05, 2023 is the deadline for students to deliver their applications to the office

Local scholarship packages will be emailed out on February 10, 2023 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 05, 2023 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.  Office staff will go through the student’s package of applications and have the student initial the list for the applications 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.

Scholarship Help
Ms. MacKenzie will give a presentation in the Learning Commons that the students will be called to attend on January 30 @ 11:20 a.m.
Ms. Kennedy will be available during lunch hour in Room 100 to help students complete their scholarship application packages on March 13-17, and April 3 – 5.

People, Place, Potential – VIU’s Strategic Plan (2021-2026) includes ongoing commitment to deepening access for all learners.  VIU is excited to share a change to our VIU President’s Entrance Scholarship for High School Students, and our VIU Chancellor’s Entrance Scholarship for Aboriginal Students process that will increase access to scholarships and awards for all students.  In line with VIU’s mandate as an open access institution, we continue to encourage applicants to VIU to complete their scholarship, award, and bursary (SAB) profile, including the option to upload any supporting documents. This is a change to past practice where high school principals would be responsible for submitting scholarship nomination forms.  Students now control information submitted through their personal VIU online scholarship, award, and bursary profile. We are excited about this change as it supports greater access for all VIU students.

High schools wishing to support their top students are encouraged to provide a supporting reference letter which the student can then upload to their VIU scholarship, award, and bursary profile.

We ask for your support in encouraging all students to complete their profile by the two annual deadlines of October 30th and March 30th.
