Scholarships

Scholarships provide a great opportunity for learners to earn money to help pay for a post-secondary education. While most scholarships are available for seniors intending to enroll in a college or university, there are opportunities available for learners interested in furthering their education in the trades.

If you are planning to attend college, it is also important to look for scholarships through the school you plan to attend. This information is typically available on the college's website or by contacting the admissions department.

It's important that learners take the time to review the application materials carefully to be sure that they meet the requirements, they share the required information neatly and correctly, and submit their materials before deadline. If you need assistance or have questions, please contact your guidance counselor.

The list of available scholarships is updated frequently, so be sure to check back for new additions.
