Local Scholarships
April 06, 2022 is the deadline for students to deliver their applications to the office

Local scholarship packages will be emailed out on February 11, 2022 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 06, 2022 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.
