The Ministry will determine recipients based on students’ achievement in Grades 10, 11, and 12 courses that satisfy graduation program requirements (including elective courses).

Winners will have demonstrated community service, both inside and outside their schools, and shown aptitude and commitment to their chosen career paths.

Post-Secondary Scholarships – each Post-Secondary institution has scholarships to be awarded to new students. Go to the institution’s website and look for Scholarships and Awards. The amount of the scholarship will vary and each institution will list their criteria. Some scholarships are awarded automatically based on the student’s course average for their qualifying courses. For other awards an application along with a resume and/or an essay are needed to be considered by the awards panel at the institution. Each award will state the deadline and what needs to be completed for a student to be considered.
