We encourage students to apply for as many scholarships as possible to help reduce the costs of their post-secondary education. There are countless scholarships available to students and unfortunately, many go unclaimed because students don't apply. Please make an appointment with Mrs. Morrison to get a list of places to look for scholarships. One great way to find scholarships is to sign up to www.scholarshipscanada.com and receive free information about scholarships that students qualify for. To keep organized and never miss a deadline, use our Scholarship Tracking Sheet. Need help applying for scholarships? Make an appointment with Mrs. Morrison to go over your options for funding post-secondary.
