Financial Information, Scholarships and Awards

Scholarship applications do begin early in the fall and continue throughout the school year.  For many scholarships, school sponsorship or a school nomination is required; in many cases, a school can only nominate or sponsor a single student.  It is very important that you speak with Mr. Scott before you proceed with one of these applications so that you can follow our school's selection process and policy. 

Students are required to submit a condensed application to the OSS Selection Committee; forms are available in the Guidance office and the deadline to hand them in will pre-date the actual scholarship deadline so that there is time for a decision to be made and your official application prepared.

Every year the Canadian Federation of University Women (Orillia) offer scholarships to graduating students. Below you will find the regulations regarding applications for these scholarships.

Please note that since a transcript and photocopying are required, the deadline to have your completed applications in to the Guidance Office is:  Monday, April 20, 2020.

You can download the application from their site, where it says:  This past June (2019), eighteen scholarships were awarded in amounts ranging from $700 to $1,500.  Scholarship applications were received from the three area high schools, and the Orillia Learning Centre.  These young women are planning to continue their education at the college/university level in the fall of 2019.  The deserving students met the CFUW Orillia criteria of Academic Ability, Integrity, Love of Learning, Leadership, and School and Community Involvement.  We wish these amazing young women every success in their endeavours.

Please see Mr. Scott if you have any questions or concerns.
