Scholarships

Think about earning and winning scholarships to help you pay for your post secondary education. Everyone should look into scholarships! Many students earn the Rutherford Scholarship in at least one of the years that they are in high school, but then neglect to apply for it when they are going to attend a Post-Secondary Institutuion. Start planning what scholarships you will apply for before you are in your grade 12 year. You might feel overwhelmed once you are in Grade 12 with your diploma courses. The Bert Church scholarship directory is just one source for you to start you scholarship hunt.
