SCHOLARSHIPS vs BURSARIES

  • A scholarship is an award based on merit.  Merit means that something is done well, be it academics, sports, or community service.
  • Bursaries are sums of money given out on the basis of financial need.

TIPS FOR SCHOLARSHIP SUCCESS

  • Sources for scholarship funds include Universities & Colleges, Banks, Private Foundations, Unions, Companies (could be your parents’ employers), Embassies, Provincial & Federal governments.  Look into them all!

Marks are important, but many scholarships also look at:

  • Extracurricular activities
  • Community Service

PLAN AHEAD!

Most due dates are based on the date your application arrives.  Remember that mailed-in applications can take several days to arrive.  Also give your teachers and other sponsors plenty of time to write reference letters.  They are usually happy to write a letter, but can’t do it overnight!

  • The greater the value of the scholarship, the more work that is involved in applying for it (and hopefully winning it).  Give yourself enough time to do a good job, and don’t wait until the last minute.

Include as many of these qualities as you can in your application, and don’t be afraid to brag:

  • Enthusiasm
  • Teamwork
  • Character
  • Hard Work
  • Purpose
  • Overcoming Obstacles or Challenges
  • Initiative
  • Perseverance
  • Responsibility

PROOFREAD your essay, and have someone else read it over as well, before you send it in.

  • Remember that thousands of dollars in scholarship money goes unclaimed every year.  It does no harm to apply for as many as you can!
