Scholarships are available to senior students of all backgrounds pursuing all sorts of post-secondary futures. Workshops in September help students to navigate finding scholarships as well as how to write winning applications for them.
In semester 1, the scholarship committee nominates one student for each of the following provincial and national scholarships, based on their draft applications:
- BC Excellence
- Bright Beginnings
In semester 2, the scholarship committee examines applications for and then awards internal scholarships—money donated to the Queen Elizabeth Secondary scholarship fund (donations come from Surrey Schools initiatives and a variety of community members). The list of awards and their criteria, as well as the application form , is published in the early Spring. Applications are released in February and are due in March:
- DAS - District Authority Scholarships
- PS36 - Partner 36 Scholarships
- Queen Elizabeth Internal Scholarships
A list of some external scholarships is also available to students via the grade 12 Team's "Scholarships Information" channel. Students are encouraged to do their own research into community-based scholarships available to them as well.
For essay-based applications, students who have completed an outline as well as a draft of their application can make a calendly appointment for further feedback prior to submitting their work. It is suggested that students looking for such help book their appointment at least two weeks in advance of the scholarships deadline.
Any scholarship monies won should be reported to Ms. Nikkanen.
