Scholarships & Bursaries

Many scholarships and bursaries are not based solely on academics, but on community service and extra-curricular activities. Over the years, Selkirk students have earned many of these awards. Students are encouraged to check the scholarship board outside the counselling area for scholarship and bursary updates. As well, students should check post secondary school websites for scholarship information.

EXTERNAL SCHOLARSHIPS: There are some excellent websites that students can access:

There are a variety of awards and scholarships available through the Ministry of Education:

The Graduation Program Examinations Scholarships rewards graduating students in BC for academic excellence in their provincial examinations from Grades 10 to 12. These $1,000 awards and $2,500 (to the top 20 students only) awards can be redeemed when a student enters a designated post-secondary institution.
