Scholarships

Being awarded a scholarship is a great way for students to be recognized for all their hard work, but you will not get a scholarship if you do not apply. Finding scholarships can be a daunting task, but it is worth the effort.
 
As a student of Vanier, you have scholarships that are specifically available to you. These are the result of contributions from alumni and community members throughout the years. 
 
During the school year, you will be alerted to scholarships not listed on this page. They may be relevant to you or not, but take a look each time. New scholarships will be added to the Grads Scholarship Page on Edsby. If you are in Grade 12 and not connected to that group, please see the scholarship coordinator. Deadlines and reminders will be shared in the Edsby group as well. 
 
Each scholarship has a unique set of criteria and its own deadline. These deadlines are non-negotiable. Make sure to check out the scholarship workshop sessions that run during the school year. 
 
If you have further questions, get in touch with the Scholarship Coordinator. (gillian.muench@htcsd.ca).
