Students wishing to be considered for a scholarship must be currently enrolled in their final year of studies at a public secondary school in British Columbia and expected to graduate in June 2021. One winner will be chosen from each of the six BCSSA provincial chapters (Fraser Valley, Kootenay-Boundary, Metro, Vancouver Island, Northern, Thompson-Okanagan). Each winner will be awarded a $1,000 scholarship.
In selecting the recipients for this year's awards, the scholarship committees will consider demonstrated exemplary service and leadership within the school and community. Letters of reference will be required affirming the applicant's accomplishments and efforts to improve the quality of life for young people and others during the COVID19 pandemic. In addition, the applicant must submit a short description (450 words maximum) of how his/her efforts have made a difference in the life or lives of others in the pandemic context.
The winners will be announced in late spring 2021. Only complete applications will be accepted for the scholarship selection process. Please ensure your package contains the required information and documents. Please provide the information as attachments in PDF or Microsoft Word format.
