Scholarships

Hi all,


ScholarTree is still committed to helping reduce student debt in Canada by making scholarship more accessible. Most people don't realise how many scholarships are awarded early in the school year. ScholarTree.ca has $997,500 worth of scholarships that are currently accepting applications. Students can find which scholarships are best fit for them by signing up at ScholarTree.ca.

You have to sign up with them to access their scholarship partners. This is separate from the district and community offered scholarships and bursaries.
