Awards and Bursaries
Where do most students find $$? At the College/University they attend. Each post-secondary school has their own scholarships and awards. Some are entrance scholarships and may not require an application; others are prestigious awards that do require an application. Be sure to visit the website of the post-secondary school you are interested in attending and check out the scholarships, bursaries and financial aid available!
