Each year, we publish a school-based scholarship package which contains 27 scholarships ranging in monetary value from between $100 and $1000. Many of these awards have been in existence for more than 25 years and were set up in order to honour the memory of former students and teachers, as well as to encourage graduating grade 12 students to pursue post-secondary studies. Regardless of what type of post-secondary education you are pursuing next year, whether it is a degree, diploma, certificate, trade, or other form of training, there is something for which you will fit the criteria!
