There are many opportunities for students to earn and achieve financial support for post-secondary studies. 

Students should actively seek out and research all available financial support. They can see their guidance counselor for more details. As scholarships and bursaries have firm guidelines and application deadlines, students should leave themselves ample time to complete the application process. Students should make note of all deadlines and ensure they have all documentation in on time. There are many opportunities available for scholarship outside of Grade 12 as well. It is never too soon to begin to seek out opportunities and to apply. 

A scholarship is awarded first on the basis of academic achievement while a bursary is awarded primarily on the basis of financial need. Neither has to be repaid. More Information is available from Student Services.

Many post-secondary institutes and scholarship granting agencies, require references. Teachers and administration write many letters for students. Being specific in the purpose of the reference letter and ensuring students allow ample time to
complete the letter is always very helpful and makes for a stronger reference in the end.

When I've found a scholarship I think I may qualify for, what should I do next?

  • Review the application and ensure that you complete it in detail.
  • Be sure to provide your references with your most current information (for example: a resume) so they can provide you with the strongest letter of recommendation.  Providing the criteria of the scholarship to your referee will also assist in addressing the specific areas of focus.
  • Please note that all reference letter requests (principal recommendation and/or teacher recommendations) are due with your application to your counsellor. Please provide your references a minimum of two working weeks prior to the deadline date. Check the dates carefully as holiday times are not included in the two week request. 

Remember, when you consider applying, pay close attention to:

  1. Qualifications you need to be considered for the scholarship
  2. Support documentation required
  3. Application deadlines

At Forest Lawn High School, counsellors are available to support you in finding out more about these and other scholarships, bursaries, and awards for which you might want to apply.
