You will already know that the 2011 grads from SMUS earned a HUGE amount of scholarship money. Read on if you would like to know how that happened!
There are several things you can do in order to be considered for scholarships.
- Achieve good grades: Most universities in Canada offer merit based scholarships based on your marks in the courses you will be using for admission. Scholarships are offered for marks within the 75% – 100% range. The higher your achievement, the higher the value of your scholarship.
- Get involved in your community: Many universities and private donors are interested in supporting students who are involved in volunteer activities in their communities. Many offer major scholarships with these experiences their focus.
- Continue your hobbies. Both universities and private donors are interested in your passion. This is what quite often sets you apart from others!
- Research: Check the finance pages of all the universities to which you will apply. Make an appointment to see Ms. Casey who can help to facilitate your applications.
- Meet the deadlines: Do keep a notebook and start applications early.
