Grade 12 students who are enrolled in at least six courses at Palmer may qualify for in-school scholarships and bursaries.  This includes courses with Richmond Virtual School.

Currently, the school and district are actively pursuing businesses, organizations and individuals in the community to donate school scholarships. These scholarships are awarded on the basis of pre-set criteria determined by the donors or the Palmer Scholarship Committee.


The Ministry of Education provides a number of $1250 awards to be awarded to Palmer students who show superior achievement in Indigenous Languages and Culture, Arts Education (Visual Arts, Music, Dance, Drama), Applied Design, Skills, and Technologies (Business Education, Technology, Home Economics, Information Communication Technology), Physical Activity, International Languages, Technical and Trades Training, or Community Service.  To qualify for these scholarships, students must:

  • be a Canadian citizen or permanent resident (landed immigrant) at the time of applying for the scholarship.
  • be a BC resident.
  • fulfill the BC graduation requirements of either the 2018 Graduation Program or the Adult Graduation Program by August 31st of the student’s graduating year.
  • meet the criteria determined by the local Scholarship Committee.

**students apply for this scholarship as part of the in-school scholarship/bursaries application process**

Note:   A student can receive both a BC Achievement Scholarship and a District/Authority Scholarship.

BC Achievement Scholarships recognize broad achievement in courses meeting 2018 Graduation Program requirements (both required and elective courses). The Ministry will determine recipients based on students’ achievement in Grades 10-12 courses that satisfy graduation program requirements.  A cumulative average of marks will be calculated and form the basis for awarding the BC Achievement Scholarship. This average includes required and elective courses from Grades 10, 11, and 12 (52 credits in required courses, 28 credits in elective courses).

All courses must have a percentage score; however, one 4-credit TS or SG indicator among the scores is allowed with the exception of the Language Arts 12 course used for graduation requirements (English Studies 12, Français langue première 12, or English 12 First Peoples) which must have a percentage score, not TS or SG. Ties among students will be broken using the Language Arts 12 score (as noted above).

**Students do not apply for this scholarship**

Please check ‘Scholarships’ information under the Students tab on the Palmer website for updated information regarding this, and any other, scholarship.



There are many scholarships offered by institutions, industries, unions, businesses and individuals that are available to students regionally, provincially, and nationally. These must be applied for individually. Information regarding these scholarships can be obtained in the counselling career centre.  Deadline dates will vary.
