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.

Post-Secondary Entrance Awards

For students planning to attend post-secondary programs in the fall, entrance awards are available through the institution you will be attending. Entrance awards can be a great source of money to pay for school. Check with your institution directly for information as deadlines and application processes vary by school. Good luck!

Deadlines are just around the corner!
