Scholarships & Bursaries
There are thousands of scholarships/bursaries/essay contests that students can apply for. We have developed a small database of websites that students can access in their search for post-secondary funding.
ALEXANDER RUTHERFORD SCHOLARSHIP
Every grade 12 student should apply for this!!! A student must have a minimum combined average based on five designated courses in at least one grade: Grade 10, 11 or 12. Only marks earned prior to post-secondary study can be used to calculate this average. A student does not need to meet this average in all three school years or in all courses to qualify for a portion of the scholarship. The minimum average, value of the award, and courses that can be used also depend on the year the student graduated. No deadlines. Apply online after you have been accepted by your preferred post-secondary institution.
