Scholarships!
True or False? You can get a scholarship just by living in New Dundee? True! It’s also true that a student living in Kitchener can get $1,000 scholarship who can express in writing their financial need, contribution to school and civic activities, scholastic efforts and demonstrate a plan to help finance their own education. And applying for scholarships is an excellent way to demonstrate that financial planning! Due dates are coming up so check out these opportunities in Student Services.
