Tips for the application process

  • Start the scholarship search early – get started on the process as soon as applications open to ensure your child has enough time to prepare their application
  • Encourage your child to apply for all of the scholarships they are eligible for – students will not be offered more than one scholarship, however applying for all relevant scholarships will increase your child’s opportunities for receiving a scholarship
  • Encourage your child to participate in activities outside of the classroom – if your child is looking to apply for a merit or leadership based scholarship, we look for well-rounded students who are involved in activities and programs that are meaningful to them (not just the required community service hours through school)
  • If edits need to be made to an ‘in progress’ application, applicants can log in to edit and submit here.
