Seaforth Elementary Alumni Scholarship

At École Seaforth Elementary School, our mission is to provide a happy, safe, supportive and challenging learning environment where our children learn to become compassionate citizens able to contribute in a global community.

With the spirit of citizenship at heart, the Seaforth scholarship is more community based than academic focused. While a respectable grade point average is expected, the successful candidate must be able to demonstrate how they provide leadership to younger members of the community as well as partnership with elder members in the same community. The student will demonstrate that a true leader guides those who need to know, while, at the same time, learns the value in the ability to follow and learn from others.

In a 500 word essay the eligible students must demonstrate how they have exemplified these qualities. While we encourage all to apply, we are looking for students that have gone outside of the home or classroom to make a difference in the community and make this community a better place to live.

Please include a brief letter of support for this scholarship from a teacher or a school/community official as well as the dates the student attended Seaforth.
