Awards & Scholarships

Scholarships are an excellent way to help fund your post-secondary education! It’s important to treat applying for scholarships like a part-time job -- the more planning and effort you put into it, the more money you have the potential to be awarded. Scholarships can be accessed in a number of ways, including through the community, the institution you plan to attend, and the school awarded scholarships available to SCS students in the spring. It’s also helpful to ask your parents/guardians if their workplace or union offers scholarships. Feel free to consult with Mrs. Matheson (dion.matheson@eips.ca) if you have any questions about how to apply for scholarships.

Here is a guide to applying for scholarships and a list of scholarships you can apply for!
