With a view to supporting local students to advance studies and pursue higher education opportunities, the Rugged & Real Post-Secondary Scholarship is awarded annually to a deserving student attending a post-secondary institution whose permanent residence is within the MD.
Current seasonal or student staff of the MD are qualified to apply for this scholarship, regardless of residence. Mature students are also encouraged to apply.
The Application Process
The application process differs slightly each year. For the 2021 scholarship, applicant submissions are in the form of a written submission or a short video/audio segment.
2021 scholarship applications are now being accepted. To begin, please review the application form in the Scholarships and Bursaries section of the website. This opportunity will close on July 31, 2021.
