Scholarships & Bursaries


Hopefully many of you are thinking about applying for scholarships and bursaries for post secondary education.  There are many varied opportunities that will come up throughout this next year.  Some scholarships and bursaries are offered directly through the post secondary institution, while others are awarded/funded by outside groups and organizations (eg. The Loran Scholars Foundation, TD Scholarships for Community Leadership).  For an extensive list of scholarships and bursaries and their approximate application due dates see the chart that is linked below titled ‘Scholarship Info for CCVI Grads’.  Please note that there are many scholarships and bursaries that exist, therefore not all will be included in this document.  For this reason it is very important that you do your research to ensure that you do not miss out on any opportunities, particularly when it comes to scholarships specific to your post secondary institutions of interest.

For major scholarships that require nomination by our school, as well as a few other significant scholarships, we will be making announcements and posting the announcements to the Grade 12 Google Classroom.  For all other scholarships you will want to follow the chart posted and keep track of important dates on your own calendar.

You will also find below, and posted to the Google Classroom, tips on applying for scholarships and tips for scholarship interviews.  If you have individual questions or need support in the application process, you can book a guidance appointment.

Good luck with your research and applications!
