Students and Parents
In this book you will find information regarding applications, deadline dates, mailing addresses, and contacts for
various scholarships, bursaries and awards.

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

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 under Student Services Scholarships and Bursaries for information, application forms
and linkshttps://bluefieldhigh.ca/students/student-services-blog/scholarships/.

You are encouraged to read through this book. If you have any questions, please see the School Counsellors.
