Dogwood District / Authority Scholarship

Criteria
It’s time to start applying for the Dogwood District /Authority which is a scholarship targeted to students seeking a career in the “trades”. Students who have completed a Youth in Trades Program or ACE-It are a natural fit for this scholarship but anyone who fits the criteria can be considered. THERE ARE A LIMITED AMOUNT ADMINISTERED. MAKE SURE YOU APPLY AND APPLY EARLY.
Here are some things to know when filling out the application:
  • Elective areas for completion are: Fine Arts, Indigenous Language and Culture, Applied Skills, Physical Activity, International Languages, Community Service*, Technical and Trades Training.
  • “a minimum 2.5 (“C+”) Grade Point Average (GPA) calculated on the BEST 10 Grade 11 and 12, 4-credit courses including a minimum of four courses (except for Community Service) from their chosen area listed above.  One of the four courses may be Work Experience 12A or B (WEX12A or B) if it is related to the student’s chosen career path.”
  • When filling out the application, the committee is looking for students not necessarily planning on going to a university (but are going to a technical or trade school). Remember this when applying.
  • Since this is a scholarship geared towards the elective areas above, the “chosen career area”, “post-secondary institution” and “program” should reflect that meaning. This is not the scholarship for future doctors, lawyers, or venture capitalists. Also, make sure that your “career area” reflects your “elective area” meaning someone who has “Fine Arts” as their elected area will probably be rejected if their career goal is to be an accountant.
  • final decisions are made by a District committee.
Value

31 awards to graduating Burnaby North students @ $1, 250 each if  they are attending a designated post-secondary institution or B.C. authorized trades training provider.
