Don't limit yourself to the scholarships offered by the school for entrance.
So I'm really confused about University recently. And I just started to get the hang of high school this year (sad I know). And now I just discovered that you have to PAY to submit your admission/request to join a university?!
You mentioned in my question that lots of companies and groups offer scholarships. I'm a pro with essays, but I have no idea where to start to look for which groups and companies. Could you help me out? Like, do specific companies state that they're giving out scholarships? Or do you randomly write a nice one and if it wow them enough, then they'll give you cash? I saw on the news last year that there's this site that has 1000s of bursaries every year in Canada but no one goes on it so most of it goes away wasted. But I don't remember the site :(
To apply to university, you do have to pay. When I did it a few years back, it cost $300 to apply to up to 3 programs. Worth it! You could pay extra for more; for the most part, you only really need 3 or so unless you're really undecided as to what you wanted to do.
At Mac, the scholarship opportunities aren't that fantastic. I got one through my dad's company, but you can look on websites to see if there are others that you qualify for.
One thing to keep in mind is that if you have financial need, there are bursaries offered by the government. The Queen Elizabeth Reach For The Top bursary is an example. When you apply for OSAP, you can also apply for it. OSAP also gives you bursaries depending on what you owe.
Here's a website with scholarships listed. It looks like a reputable source.
