Scholarship season is fast approaching, so make sure that you have the following items ready for any application that you send:

  • letters of reference (from community leaders, coaches, school staff, church officials, etc)
  • list of activities/awards (to either attach to an application form or to hand out to people writing you a reference letter so they can really talk you up... it also comes in handy when completing multiple applications so that you have the dates and activity/award names handy)
  • printouts of all scholarship info including a copy of the completed application that you sent so that you know which ones you applied for and what you said
  • a grade 12 picture (either school or grad casual or cap/gown)
  • a transcript of your marks (either from the Ministry of Ed or a school generated one)
  • a copy of the letter of acceptance into your college or university (either official or conditional)

I recommend that you keep all your papers in either a regular file folder or an accordian-style folder.  It keeps things clean and ready for the next scholarship application!

When you are starting to apply for scholarships, it's important to be really organized.  One method of doing this is to have a file folder or binder with sheet protectors ready to keep all the information you need in one place.  Some of the items that you should begin to collect prior to sending out applications include:

  • Your current transcript from the Ministry of Education.  KCS can provide you with an Unofficial Transcript, but if you would like an official one (without the watermark), please go to the Ministry website to order one online.
  • A letter of confirmation of enrolment into your chosen post-secondary school.  If the official letter hasn't been received, a conditional letter of acceptance will do in the interim.
  •  A complete list of all of your school and community activies, academic information and awards, and any other personal information that you feel is relevant.  You can create your own form or the use the one linked above.
  • Letters of reference from a variety of people.  These can include a teacher/school administrator, an SCC member, a coach or club leader, a church official, or other person who is involved in your development in a particular area (music, dance, sports, 4-H, etc)
  • Keep a picture of yourself on hand as well as thank you cards.  Some scholarships require you to send a photo if you are selected, and a thank you card is necessary.
  • Know your S.I.N. number.  Scholarship money is taxable, and many organizations require you to provide this number if you are selected.
