SCHOLARSHIPS & BURSARIES: Grade 12!

A REMINDER TO STUDENTS & PARENTS:

It is the student's responsibility to research their own scholarship and bursary opportunities,
including requests for all supporting documentation, such as transcripts (which must be requested in the guidance office), reference letters, essays, etc.
