Palmer Scholarship Application Link

At Palmer, we encourage all Grade 12s to apply for every scholarship and bursary they may be eligible for.  It is our hope to help students and families in their post-secondary studies in any way possible.  Grade 12s should see their counsellor for details on scholarships - but students must apply! 

There are 3 categories of scholarships:

  1. Institutional Scholarships - the academic criteria is established by the specific institution that provides the scholarship;
  2. General Community Scholarships - awarded to students who apply for and meet the specific criteria established by an organization in the community. 
  3.  “In-School” Palmer Scholarships - are given to Palmer by donors who have a unique relationship with the school.  Students must apply to the Palmer Scholarship Committee via an online application in April to be eligible for these awards.  These scholarships will be awarded at the June Valedictory Ceremony.

 

BC Achievement Scholarships - BC Achievement Scholarships recognize the top 8000 graduates in the province. The Ministry will determine recipients based on achievement in Grades 10, 11, and 12 courses that satisfy 2018 Graduation Program requirements, including elective courses.  A cumulative average percentage will be calculated and form the basis for determining winners, who receive a $1250 scholarship voucher to use towards their post-secondary tuition. **Students do not apply for this scholarship**
