What is a Scholarship/Award?
Scholarships and awards are grants or payments given to students to help support them with their post-secondary studies. Unlike loans, scholarships do not need to be paid back and interest fees are not charged. Scholarships and awards are excellent ways for students to help pay for their post-secondary studies. Some scholarships are awarded to students because of their grades, but many others are based on factors such as: community service and leadership, financial need, athletics, special needs, ethnic/cultural background and/or faith etc. Some scholarships or grants are specifically for adult (mature) students.
Students are encouraged to visit www.scholarshipscanada.com and create an account as well as speak to a guidance counsellor to explore scholarship opportunities.
Does CALC have any scholarships?
The Bill Chappell CALC Science Scholarships are awarded to two CALC Adult (21 years +) students who have been accepted to a science, applied science or engineering program at the university or college level. Bill Chappell, who retired as the Program Leader for Science after 20 years of teaching at CALC, established the awards in recognition of the dedication and effort that students have brought to their learning and the sacrifices that many must make.
The first award will be valued at $500 for a student accepted to a college program in science, applied science or engineering while the second award will be valued at $1000 for a student accepted to a university program in science, applied science or engineering.
