## Finding Scholarships

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 other secondary schools’ websites for scholarship information. e.g., Oak Bay Secondary and St Michael’s University School, Mt Doug career center.
• 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)
