If you are a young British Columbian who has made a difference in your community, we want to hear from you! The Trevor Linden Community Spirit Scholarship rewards students who have demonstrated outstanding leadership abilities and exemplary contributions and commitment to enriching the lives of others in the community.
Who is eligible?
The Trevor Linden Community Spirit Scholarship recognizes four student leaders in the province of British Columbia who are entering their first year of post secondary education, are in good academic standing and have made exceptional contributions in the following areas:
A) School and community service, leadership
B) Initiating community development
C) Affecting positive change
D) Mentoring others
E) Personal development and growth
F) Good academic performance
Taking the time to do something for others during difficult times in one's own life requires particularly outstanding commitment. This is why, as part of the selection process, the personal circumstances and/or challenges of each applicant will be considered. Applicants who possess personal qualities such as dedication, commitment to helping others and strength of character will also be considered.
How do we decide?
Each applicant is reviewed and scholarship recipients are chosen based on who most closely meets the selection criteria from various regions in British Columbia (provided there are suitable, qualified applicants).
A total of four scholarships will be awarded to high school students who have the academic skills to successfully enter and complete post secondary education on a full-time basis.
Scholarship recipients will be notified prior to the end of June.
