Scholarships and Bursaries Hrvatska Skolska Zaklada


Scholarship Value: $1,000
Awards Available: 10

Scholarships in the amounts of $500 and $1,000 are available for full time attendance either at a university, college, or a technical/vocational institute. In the event of a large number of qualified applications lesser amounts may be awarded. Scholarships are awarded on the basis of academic merit. They are intended for initial post secondary schooling and are not available for graduate work. All successful applicants will have previously demonstrated a capacity for high achievement. This will be established through the applicant’s school transcript, two written letters of reference from the applicant’s teacher(s) or school counselor, and a short essay on a topic chosen by the committee. Scholarships are normally provided for a term of one year or less. Applicants may re-apply for a scholarship but if funds are limited, preference will be given to students in their initial year of post secondary schooling.

Bursaries

Bursaries in the amounts of $500 and $1,000 are available for full time attendance either at a university, college, or a technical/vocational institute. In the event of a large number of qualified applications lesser amounts may be awarded. They are intended for initial post secondary schooling and are not available for graduate work. Bursaries are awarded on the basis of financial need and previously demonstrated capacity for successful completion of a program of studies. Capacity for successful completion of a course of studies will be established through the applicant’s school transcript, two written letters of reference from the applicant’s teacher(s) or school counselor, and a short essay on a topic chosen by the committee. The applicant must also complete an application form that provides their financial background as well as that of their parents. This is partly accomplished by providing a copy of the family’s last completed income tax return(s). The information from the income tax return(s) will be held in the strictest of confidence. Bursaries are normally provided for a term of one year or less. Applicants may re-apply for a bursary but if funds are limited, preference will be given to students in their initial year of post secondary schooling.

Applications, though, may signify a start date other than the fall term or semester for the applicant’s school program.
