Scholarships & Bursaries

Students are encouraged to check the links in the black bar near the top of this page as well as visiting the guidance office for bursary and scholarship information.   We also encourage you check the post-secondary institution websites and search other sources.

The Local Bursary and Scholarship booklet and application forms can be found in the link in the black bar at the top of this page.  The deadline has passed to apply for local scholarships and bursaries.  Please check the external bursaries as some of these are ongoing.

Information on Ontario Universities can be found at http://www.electronicinfo.ca/, here you can find a Finance tab for scholarships offered by Ontario Universities.

The following was received from ScholarTree.ca:                                                             Just because the school year is over doesn’t mean the scholarship opportunities stop. ScholarTree.ca has $935,500 worth of scholarship opening over the summer.

We have created an Excel personal budget template for anyone to download, we hope this is a useful tool that will help students plan financially for post-secondary education:
