SCHOLARSHIP INFORMATION

Very important:  All grade 12 students should be aware of the following information in regards to their graduation requirements, honours requirements, and university/college application process.  It is your responsibility to make sure that you have the required courses to graduate in June.  Make sure to check your course selection sheet and review your accumulated credits to ensure you have the correct number of credits to graduate:  You should be certain that the selections you have made are suitable for the honors program.

Scholarship applications will be made available to all students when they are received in school. In many cases you will be required to fill out detailed applications with essays and reference letters included.  Make sure to apply to as many scholarships as possible and check all required deadlines to ensure you will have all the necessary documents in time for the selection process. This is particularly important when asking for references.  Make sure to keep copies of all references for possible future use.

Scholarship information will be provided on the announcements and will be posted on this blog. Make sure to check this blog regularly for more information.  The application process usually takes place immediately after first semester marks are available.  You may however, apply whenever you choose.  Many institutions prefer online applications and some university calendars are only available online.  Students planning on attending a U.S. university are required to write an SAT entrance test and should see Mrs Munn about the application process and fees required.  Ontario universities and colleges require a special application with special deadlines.

Finally, should you need any additional information pertaining to particular entrance requirements for a specific program please check the relevant university web site, or if uncertain, contact the admissions office via email.  I am available for any other information upon request.
