Seeking Scholarships

The entire family can attend with the purchase of a family ticket. It is a two-hour session with a Q&A period at the conclusion of the presentation. Jane Kristoffy of Right Track Educational Services, and I, are two experienced educators and parents. Between us, we have kids in high school and university so we have been through this and understand the questions parents may have. Our kids have won scholarships and gained admittance into their first-choice programs.

Jane talks about setting goals grade-by-grade in high school, career awareness, tips to get into competitive programs, and application strategies. I talk about the cost of school and the various means to pay for it, including scholarships and bursaries (where to find them, application tips, how to prepare for them, etc.). We share experiences, examples, and anecdotes.

We supplement the hard work of guidance counsellors and teachers and hope to remove the stress of the unknown from parents and students.

Parents can PURCHASE A FAMILY TICKET for any of the dates below. 

"Extremely valuable sessions. Learned a LOT. Thank you both for a wealth of insights and helpful advice. We will recommend your session to others!" - parent attendee

"With all this practical and applicable information it is never too late or too early to attend a session like this. As a parent, I feel prepared, energized and ready to support my child in her post-secondary academic pursuits." - parent attendee

VALUABLE. INFORMATIVE. HELPFUL.

Important Information From The Federal Government:


On April 22, the federal government announced new initiatives for Canadian students in light of COVID-19’s effect on summer jobs. 

CANADA STUDENT SERVICE GRANT

The Canada Student Service Grant of $1000-$5000 is to reward students “who choose to do national service and serve their communities” in the fight against COVID-19 and will also help students gain work experience, skills, and pay for tuition in September. Volunteer programs will be aimed at essential services in areas such as agriculture, food services, and the health sector. The amount of Grant you receive will depend on your volunteer hours.

 

DOUBLING CANADA STUDENT GRANTS

Student grants will be doubled in 2020-21 including those grants for students with dependents and permanent disabilities. Fulltime students are eligible for up to $6,000 and part-time students are eligible for up to $3,600.

 

ENHANCING CANADA STUDENT LOANS

The maximum weekly amount for the Canada Student Loans Program will increase from $210 to $350.

 

SPECIFIC SUPPORT FOR INDIGENOUS STUDENTS

The government is investing an additional $75.2 million in existing distinctions-based support for First Nations, Inuit, and Métis Nation students.

 

BROADENING ELIGIBILITY FOR STUDENT FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE

When assessing financial aid for students the expected student contributions will be broadened because many students and parents may not have the extra income to save for postsecondary education.
