Scholarships: Based on marks
Deadline for applications: Thursday February 11, 2021.
No late submissions will be accepted.
Applications should be submitted on paper, in an envelope, in order of bursary to Ms. Huscroft in the office. You will also have to schedule a time to scan all documents to Ms. Huscroft. The bursary booklet is available on our website at https://pcss.sd8.bc.ca. Please note some awards require specific application forms that will be accessible through your grad transition teacher, google account, school website or as Ms. Huscroft.
NOTE: Awards that say you must attend the institution within one year of graduation mean either this fall’s session (eg 2021) or January/spring session (eg 2022). If the award says you may defer for one year then you can defer to the next fall’s session (eg. 2022). Make sure the organization is aware of your registration date when applying. If you request a deferment the organization must approve that request in writing in order for you to receive the funds. Some groups do not allow deferments.
Please only apply for the bursary/scholarship that you qualify for, eg. If you do not live in the Town of Creston boundaries please do not apply. However, if you split your time amongst two households please state that in your letter to the organization. In your letter to the donor please include the important information eg. Name of parent who works within the organization (JH Huscroft, Columbia Brewery, BCTF, CUPE, Canfor etc). If you or your parent are a member of the Rod & Gun Club please include that information in your letter.
Please read all the criteria carefully in this booklet and include all the information requested. If you have any questions do not hesitate to ask Ms. Huscroft
