Scholarship/Bursary

PLEASE NOTE:  The local Scholarship & Bursary Program will continue, but with a few adaptations.  Applications from grade 12 students are due THURSDAY, APRIL 9th  – they can be dropped off at ADSS between 9am and 1pm – the drop box will be at the front entrance of the school and clearly marked.  

 

Students, please ensure that you have created a complete package for EACH scholarship or bursary you are applying for. The package must be stapled together (no paperclips or envelopes please) and include the following documents in this order:  Scholarship application, paragraph essay (if specifically requested), personal letter, unofficial transcript, 2nd Semester marks collection form (**see note below), resume and reference letters.  Also, if the scholarship or bursary requires a separate application, attach that to the very front of your package.

 

**transcripts can be requested from Mrs. White or Mrs. Wynans in the Career/Counselling Office.  Email either one of them from your Office 365 SD70 email addressnwhite@sd70.bc.ca or twynans@sd70.bc.ca  Instructions are posted below on how to access your SD70 email account from  home.

 

**2nd Semester marks collection form – if you were not able to have your current teachers fill this out prior to spring break, do not include it in your application package.  I will be advising our donor groups about the possibility of students not having this part completed.

 

The separate applications for some of the scholarships/bursaries are now posted on this page – CPF, Minor Hockey, Fir Park Village, and BC Hydro.

 

If you still have questions, please contact Mrs. Wynans – twynans@sd70.bc.ca or text/call 250-731-7134

**There are several steps that include creating a BCeID, registering for a STS account (Student Transcript Services) and then logging into STS and sending your transcripts.
