HOWE SOUND SECONDARY SCHOLARSHIP INFORMATION
Congratulations to our 2022 HSS Scholarship recipients and to our donors for their generous contributions.
2023 SCHOLARSHIP PRESENTATION:
May 24, 2023, at 7 PM, Eagle Eye Theatre
Recipients must attend presentation night to receive their awards.
The HSS 2022 Scholarship Book can be found below for reference. The 2023 book will be published in late January 2023. It includes all scholarships available at the time of publication. Other opportunities may be available and will be advertised separately through school announcements and via email.
Applications will be accepted beginning on February 23.
Grade 12 students take part in a virtual presentation by our counsellors during CLC class on Feb 23. This presentation will include important information that applicants need to know before completing the forms. This viewing period will give students time to decide which awards they will apply for and to organize their submissions for eligibility.
SCHOLARSHIP: based on academic merit or excellence in the area set out in the criteria.
BURSARY: based on demonstrated financial need as well as satisfactory academic achievement.
AWARD: not based on academic merit, but rather specific criteria as defined by the donor.
INTERNAL: Award code beings with “I”. These selections are made by the HSS Scholarship Committee.
EXTERNAL: Award code beings with “E”. These selections are made by the donor.
All applications forms will be posted in the Scholarship 22 Google classroom (all 2022 Grads will receive an invitation on Feb 23).
To access the application forms, you must be using Google Chrome as a browser and be logged in to Google Chrome with your sd48 credentials (i.e. [email protected]
INTERNAL SELECTION: Scholarship and Awards: ONLINE SUBMISSION ONLY via Google Forms. No transcripts, letters of reference or resumes are required nor will they be accepted. Separate Google Forms have been created for each item. Make sure you apply for the correct one. Google Forms will be submitted immediately but can be edited until the application closing time.
INTERNAL SELECTION – Bursaries: Use the Google Doc form found in the Scholarship 22 Google classroom and submit it as a paper package to the office. Transcripts are not required and HSS teacher reference letters do not need to be on school letterhead.
EXTERNAL SELECTION – Scholarship, Bursaries, and Awards: Use the Google Doc application form found in the Scholarship 22 Google classroom and submit it as a paper package to the office. If you wish to attach a separate resume package, you must do one for each application. Additional application forms, if specified in the criteria, will be available online through our HSS website. All external selection applications including all supporting documentation must be printed single-side only and attached with a paper clip (no staples). Applications that are not submitted in this manner will be returned to the applicant or incomplete packages may be sent to donors.
Please ensure you use the correct form. Applications on the wrong form will not be accepted.
Proof of registration is not required for the application process. It is required to redeem funds once awarded.
