Awards and Scholarships

......Encouraging, Recognizing and Rewarding Excellence

For any scholarship information please conact Ms. Evans

For Grade 12 students who are graduating, several awards are available for students who excel academically and who are involved in their school and community.  A scholarship  handbook, “Funding Opportunities for Post Secondary Education”, lists all scholarships and bursaries available for students planning on pursuing post-secondary studies.   Application forms for these awards are available in the Counseling/Career Centre.  Students are expected to contact the Career  Advisor  or their counselor early in the year about their specific needs.  A scholarship workshop will be held for parents and students early in the fall to assist with information and questions.

See your counsellor if you are interested in re-writing your grade 10 or 11 provincial exams

ENTRANCE SCHOLARSHIPS

Most post-secondary institutions offer a series of Entrance Scholarships to those students who achieve at least an “A” average in provincially examinable courses.  These range from $2000 to several thousand dollars and are substantial awards.  Applications are made in late spring and usually require letters of reference and a personal goal statement.  Students are urged to research information in the counseling area and to contact the institution of choice.  **Mrs. Janzen, the Career Advisor, has institution-specific books on Scholarships. (ie) If you are certain you will attend UBC (for example) see Mrs. Janzen.***

LEADERSHIP SCHOLARSHIPS

These are offered to students who have been outstanding contributors to their school and community as well as having an excellent academic record.  The Josten’s award and the Terry Fox Humanitarian award are two examples of these.  Both are substantial monetary awards. 

MISSION FOUNDATION 

(Application forms  available in November. Deadline is in February of  your graduating year)

The Mission Foundation is a non-profit organization set up and administered by citizens in Mission.  Each year the Mission Foundation awards several thousand dollars to high school graduates who demonstrate outstanding academic achievement, community and school involvement as well as, personal qualities.

SCHOOL AND COMMUNITY AWARDS 

(S&C Application forms available in April of your graduating year.  One general application form for about 20 Scholarships/Bursaries ) 

A  number of community groups and businesses in Mission award scholarships to students who are going on to a post-secondary institution, and who can demonstrate a connection to that  group or business.

****Please also regularly check the Scholarship information board across from the library.  It is updated every 2 weeks with new scholarship opportunities that arrive throughout the school year from Oct. 1st to June 30th.****

BC STUDENT ASSISTANCE PROGRAM

This is a joint program funded by the Government of Canada and the Province of British Columbia for students enrolled full-time in a post-secondary program of studies.  Assistance, in the form of loans and grants, is based on assessed financial need.  For more information and to apply for funding go to www.bcsap.bc.ca.  Information can also be obtained from the MSS Career Advisor.

EFFORT HONOUR ROLL

Students who develop good work habits while in school  are those most likely to succeed in the work force.  Mission Secondary’s Effort Honour Roll, therefore, recognizes students who display exemplary work habits in their studies.  All students who attain a minimum of eight “G’s” on Work Habits (with no “N’s”) during a reporting period are awarded effort honour roll status.  Our hope is to extend the recognition field trip to students who achieve Effort Honour Roll status all year.
