Scholarship Info Session

Are you interested in learning more about scholarships? awards? bursaries? Ms Halter and Mrs Nivens will be hosting an informal information session Thurs Feb 7 during NDHS in the Learning Commons. Sign up with Ms Halter in advance.


Whether you are considering an apprenticeship, a certificate, a diploma or a degree program, post-secondary education costs money and you need to be prepared for the expense. Scholarships can be a great way to help finance the expense. It's important to note that scholarships are typically based on conditional acceptance from a post-secondary institution, as scholarships are meant to help pay for school. You do not have to be fully accepted into a program at the time you apply for scholarships, but you do not get the money until you actually attend school.
