From Your Guidance Team

Mrs. Anderson, Mrs. Winter and Ms. Shaw



Hello Graduating Bears,

There are several prestigious awards coming up, some in the very near future and some a little ways off.  We encourage all of you to be investigating scholarship opportunities on your own so that you don’t miss out on the application deadlines.  I’ve taken this opportunity to highlight a few of the highly competitive scholarships below for university-bound students (some may require a nomination from the school, so read carefully).

Loran Scholar – due  October 12th 2022

https://loranscholar.ca/becoming-a-scholar/

A student in their final year of uninterrupted full-time studies in high school, present a minimum cumulative average of 85% and hold a Canadian citizenship or permanent resident status; based on evidence of integrity, courage, compassion, grit, and a high level of personal autonomy.

Queen’s University Major Admission Awards – specifically Queen’s Chancellor Scholarship

https://www.queensu.ca/studentawards/admission-awards/major-admission-awards

For the Queen’s Chancellor Scholarship, CPHS is permitted to nominate one applicant from our graduating class.  If you are interested in being considered for this, then you must take action very soon and email Mrs. Anderson by October 14th 2022 stating your intention.  Mrs. Anderson will then notify these students specifically of the next steps.  Final applications for this award are due December 8th 2022, but you must also apply to Queen’s University on OUAC by no later than November 20th 2022.

 

Schulich Leader Scholarship – Not due until January/February 2023, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t take a look.

https://www.schulichleaders.com/#slide-top

This is the most prestigious undergraduate Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) Scholarship in Canada.  This Scholarship requires a nomination from your school.  A separate email with details about how to be considered will be sent out;  keep an eye out for it if you are interested in being considered.

 

There are more big scholarships and awards available and as we receive the information we will be sure to pass it onto all of you, our graduating class…..what a great reason to keep checking your school email regularly. 😊

Each individual university also has their own Major awards with deadlines often set in the fall.  I would encourage you to take a look at the specific universities you may be interested in applying too so that you don’t miss out.  For example here are two:

 

National Scholarship from the University of Toronto – due October 20th 2022

https://future.utoronto.ca/national-scholarship/about/

A Canadian citizen, permanent resident, or protected person currently in their final year of Canadian secondary school; intending to begin university the following academic year; a National Book Award nominee or self-identify as meeting the criteria: an original and creative thinker; committed to school and community; a high achiever in academic and creative pursuits; enthusiastic about learning and intellectual exploration.

 

Queen’s University Major Admission Awards – due December 8th 2022, but you must also apply to Queen’s University on OUAC by no later than November 20th 2022.

https://www.queensu.ca/studentawards/admission-awards/major-admission-awards

Students who demonstrate superior academic ability, creative and original thinking, involvement in school or community activities, and proven leadership can apply for a Queen’s major admission award. Financial need is also a consideration for some of our major admission awards.

Remember it is up to you to take the initiative, start the search and complete scholarship applications by the deadlines.  If you have questions, we would be glad to help you in Guidance.  Please email either Mrs. Anderson or Mrs. Winter to make an appointment.

 

Thank you,

Mrs. Winter, Mrs. Anderson, Ms. Shaw
