SCHOLARSHIP: based on academic merit or excellence in the area set out in the criteria.

BURSARY: based on demonstrated financial need as well as satisfactory academic achievement.

AWARD: not based on academic merit, but rather specific criteria as defined by the donor.

before spring break.

INTERNAL: Award code begins with “I”. These selections are made by the HSS Scholarship Committee and are due on Wednesday after spring break.



All application forms are posted in the Scholarship 24 Google classroom (all 2024 Grads will receive an invitation on February 14). 

To access the application forms, you must be using Google Chrome as a browser and be logged in to Google Chrome with your sd48 credentials (i.e. [email protected]).


INTERNAL SELECTION: Scholarship and Awards: ONLINE SUBMISSION ONLY via Google Forms. No transcripts, letters of reference or resumes are required nor will they be accepted. Separate Google Forms have been created for each item. Make sure you apply for the correct one. Google Forms will be submitted immediately but can be edited until the application closing time.


INTERNAL SELECTION – Bursaries:  Use the Google Doc form found in the Scholarship 24 Google classroom and submit it as a paper package to the office. Transcripts are not required and HSS teacher reference letters do not need to be on school letterhead.



EXTERNAL SELECTION – Scholarship, Bursaries, and Awards:  Use the Google Doc application form found in the Scholarship 2024 Google classroom and submit it as a paper package to the office. If you wish to attach a separate resume package, you must do one for each application. Additional application forms, if specified in the criteria, will be available online through our HSS website.  All external selection applications including all supporting documentation must be printed single-side only and attached with a paper clip (no staples). Applications that are not submitted in this manner will be returned to the applicant or incomplete packages may be sent to donors.   



Please ensure you use the correct form.  Applications on the wrong form will not be accepted.

Proof of registration is not required for the application process. It is required to redeem funds once awarded.

All students applying for scholarships, awards and bursaries must complete this document which should include the name code of all the items you are applying for. One copy of this document per student must be printed and handed into the office along with the individual applications. This is due on April 2.
