Scholarships

Whether you are considering an apprenticeship, a certificate, a diploma or a degree program, post-secondary education costs money and you need to be prepared for the expense. Scholarships can be a great way to help finance the expense. It's important to note that scholarships are typically based on conditional acceptance from a post-secondary institution, as scholarships are meant to help pay for school. You do not have to be fully accepted into a program at the time you apply for scholarships, but you do not get the money until you actually attend school.

Alexander Rutherford Scholarship

The application for the Alexander Rutherford Scholarship is now available for studies beginning in September 2017. Apply once you have final grade 12 marks.
