One City Scholarship: Due Fri. April 24

 

The ONE City Scholarship Committee is responding to the Covid- 19 situation by making the following adjustments:

 

1. Students can now apply without their references having to complete their responses at the same time. They would prefer that students apply and deal with their references later.

 

2. They  are asking students to send us notice of their interest to their email address: onecityfundinfo@gmail.com,

so that they can inform prospective applicants if there is any change in our process and application dates because of Covid-19.

 

One City Scholarship

Update: April 6th 2020

The next two months are when the majority of scholarship applications close for students who will be attending post-secondary school next year (here is one of the larger dollar value scholarships that is only available to Ontario students.) Scholarships are probably the furthest thing from most students' minds with all of the uncertainties related to COVID-19 but unfortunately, as of now, very few scholarship providers have extended their deadlines.

ScholarTree's daily traffic has been halved since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. For students who are still interested in applying to scholarships, this can be an opportunity for them to gain an additional competitive edge as there are fewer students competing for these awards. 

Here are a few resources to help students who are applying to scholarships:

Humber College Bursary

https://humber.ca/admissions/financial-aid/scholarships-bursaries/bursaries.html#undefined-accordion/tab-tab1
