Financial Information, Scholarships and Awards


10 Steps Money clip art.jpg

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.

A Reminder to Potential Graduates

A link to the Grad Profile (for Awards and Scholarships) was sent to your school email account in February.  Completion of the Grad Profile ensures your eligibility for various school & local scholarships and bursaries.  Be sure to check your email account regularly for important updates and information from Guidance!
