It is the student's responsibility to research their own scholarship and bursary opportunities, including requests for all supporting documentation, such as transcripts (which must be requested in Student Services), reference letters, essays, etc.

 
Guidance will post all scholarships and bursaries that come through our office;
however there is an abundance of other opportunities for post-secondary money both provincially and nationally.Please see the links provided below for more information.

                                                                                                                                                                                                

Please note that students are to sign up for transcripts in the Student Services Area.

(Students must sign up two days in advance and are responsible for picking up their own transcripts)
