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
                                                 www. yconic.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.
