Where can I find scholarships? Where can I find out about scholarship opportunities outside (or including) the ones offered by universities? Where are the best places to find lists of scholarships, if any? How can I find out more information about this, other than school?
- Attend opportunities such as the C.U.E. (i.e., Canadian Universities Event at SD #63 secondary school in early fall) and PSIBC (i.e., Post Secondary Institute of B.C. Nights at SD #63 secondary schools for an evening session in early fall.)
- Post secondary institutes’ websites will have special tabs: e.g.,
- UVic – Finance Your Education,
- Camosun College, Emily Carr & VIU – Financial Aid & Awards,
- UBC – Financial Assistance
- Public websites such as:
- Visit post secondary administrative centers and speak with their advisors
- Visit other secondary schools’ websites for scholarship information. e.g., Oak Bay Secondary and St Michael’s University School, Mt Doug career center.
- Add your email address to Claremont counsellor's (Patrick Cannon) group contact list for periodic forwarding of scholarship information from PSIs.
- Meet with Claremont counsellors about scholarships that are available only to Claremont students.
Where can I get a list of ALL the scholarships and bursaries available with short descriptions, the requirements needed, and the deadlines?
- No single list provides information about all scholarships.
- Ever changing numbers of scholarships are sponsored by continuously changing sources.
What are some great scholarships this year?
- Any scholarship is great!
- The LORAN ($100,000 IN 2016/ 2017), TD Canada Trust (e.g., $70,000 in 2016/2017), Schulich (e.g., $80,000 in 2016/2017), and renewable (or major) scholarships provide substantial amounts of money.
Is there anywhere you can apply that pays your way as long as you get a certain % in your classes at UVic?
- Scholarships such as the LORAN, Schulich Leader and TD Canada Trust offer enough money to pay for a bachelor’s degree at UVic.
- If the percentage average of your four admission courses is high enough, simply self reporting to UVic may provide you with a renewable entrance scholarship that might pay most of your way at UVic
- Another alternative is to apply for the “application required” scholarships at UVic for a renewable scholarship
- Another alternative is to apply for many scholarships of smaller amounts.
For which University courses can we get a scholarship?
- Many departments will have their own scholarships donated by people that want to support that area of study. University websites will indicate a variety of scholarships that are associated with specific areas of study. (e.g., UVic engineering)
