Post Secondary Education is an exciting time in a students life, however the costs associated with post-secondary education continue to grow. There are many Financial Awards available to students from sources such as local community businesses and service organizations, the British Columbia Ministry of Education, Post Secondary Institutions and other organizations and foundations. All offer various levels of support to graduating students seeking to pursue post secondary education.
Each Secondary School in Chilliwack has dedicated career staff and counselors to assist students who wish to learn about and apply for local, provincial and national awards and guide your search for industry and institutional awards. These staff are also available to meet with parents, and can provide a wealth of information about available awards and the application processes.
If you are graduating in June, begin the process of seeking information and applying for awards early in your grade 12 year.
The Ministry of Education offers several scholarships to recognize student achievement and encourage students to pursue post-secondary education. Awards are issued as vouchers that can be redeemed for tuition costs at accredited post secondary institutions.
For complete information about Ministry of Education awards programs, including how to claim your award or how to replace a lost voucher, visit the Provincial Scholarships Program website.
