Scholar Tree Scholarships

  • ScholarTree is back for another year of helping graduating students find scholarships. At ScholarTree, we are committed to continually improving how students find scholarships and increasing the number of scholarships available to students studying in Canada. We have heard first hand from students this summer the financial impact Covid-19 has had on their family financial situation, which has only made us want to work harder.

 

2021-2022 Scholarships & Bursaries

 Published by Student Services

School Counsellors: 

Jennifer Gillan and Tammi Jo Auld

Students and Parents

  This is a rough guide as it is impossible to keep information current.  Dates and financial amounts are based on last year’s information and may change from year to year.

 Often students who have an average of 85% or higher in Grade 11 and have maintained this average in Grade 12 are considered for scholarships to most universities/colleges that they make application to. The deadline date for the majority of university entrance scholarships is March 1st

 It is important to check each university and college website for information on entrance scholarships and separate application forms.   If you have any questions please see one of the School Counsellors.

 Many businesses and organizations offer scholarships, bursaries and awards that you may seek out through advertisements, word of mouth, or the internet.  The responsibility lies with you, the student, to investigate any and all avenues where these scholarships, bursaries and awards may be offered.  You may want to check out the following web sites:

www.ScholarshipsCanada.com

www.schoolfinder.com

www.scholartree.ca

As we approach the end of the school year scholarships, bursaries and awards start appearing quickly and often will have shorter deadline dates.  Many of these may require a copy of your transcripts, letters of recommendation/

reference or perhaps an essay.  Be sure to allow yourself and staff member’s time to prepare any of these requirements.

 Scholarships and awards that students accept will only be announced at the graduation ceremony once the student has provided a letter from the institution confirming the award.  Please bring in a copy of your accepted offers to the School Counsellors.

 It is imperative that students check the Scholarship/Bursary Area in the Student Services regularly or go on the Bluefield High School Website and/or Student Services Google Classroom:  2021 – 2022 Class Code:  c3sq6uh

  PLEASE NOTE:  

Over the years we have found that award values, criteria and deadlines have changed for our scholarships and bursaries.  Therefore, we are giving you just an overview of what we had last years in these months.  Complete and updated scholarship and bursaries will be posted on Student Services Google Classroom by the month.  Class Code c3sq6uh.  Remember you must be in your cloud account to access this Google Classroom.
