District Authority Scholarships

Every year, the BC Ministry of Education provides 5500 District/Authority Scholarships across the province. In School District No. 83, we are lucky to have access to a significant number of these awards. The District/Authority Scholarships are a way to recognize that success at school is more than just academic; it can include other skills and talents as well.

  • Physical Activity (not limited to Physical Education)
  • International Languages
  • Community Service (Volunteering)
  • Technical and Trades Training (Carpentry, Automotive, Mechanics, Chef’s Training)
