Do you know someone looking to apply for a scholarship, bursary or education award, who will attend post-secondary education in the fall? Here are four reasons to consider registering and applying through the Community Education Awards Hub:
1. It’s free and convenient
There is no cost to students to register and explore the available scholarships, bursaries and awards. The Awards Hub aims to bring all available awards together, providing students with an accessible single access point and system. All applications are submitted electronically.
2. It’s easy to use
The Awards Hub is simple and straightforward to use. Simply register for an account and complete the eligibility quiz. This quiz will remove from sight the scholarships, bursaries and awards that you are not eligible to apply for. From there, it’s up to the user to explore the available applications and decide on which awards they want to apply for. Applications are submitted through The Awards Hub, including any additional required information.
3. It offers scholarships, bursaries and awards of all types
Not all awards are based on high-academic achievement. In fact, many of the applications are looking for students who have completed extra-curricular activities, who show leadership qualities, and students who are looking for need-based awards, among others.
4. There is more than $300,000 available
Every year there are scholarships, bursaries and education awards that go unclaimed. Through The Awards Hub, students have access to $300,000 available from more than ten different organizations. Individual award values range from $500 to $20,000. These are dollars that have been expressly set aside to help students as they move into post-secondary education.
