A wide range of scholarship opportunities for students

Provincial scholarships are just one of the several types of scholarships, awards and bursaries available to students in the Cowichan Valley. There are also District and School-based scholarships provided by both the school community and the local business community.

Applying for scholarships can be a lot of work – but it’s worth it! It is each student’s responsibility to research the kinds of scholarships he or she may be eligible for. But remember, your school counsellor is always there to guide you.

Few scholarships today are awarded solely on the basis of marks. Increasingly, a service component (either school or community-based) is required. Get involved!

For more information on provincial, district and school-based scholarships, as well as university and college entrance scholarships and scholarships offered by external companies, organizations and athletic leagues, contact your school’s counselling department.
