Accordingly, when providing High School Graduation Marks for your scholarship application, full year marks for Grade 11 and first term marks for Grade 12 are required, as well as whatever marks or system of grading are provided by your particular school district for the second term will be accepted by our selection committee.

In Quebec, full last year of High School marks and 1st term CEGEP 1 marks along with end of year provision made will be accepted.

Proof of Registration from an accredited institution is required as per our normal criteria.

A short note should accompany your submission to explain your particular situation.
If your school provides a written document outlining their policy, include that as well.

We will thoroughly evaluate all submissions in a fair and consistent manner as always. Please read ALL the instruction package to make your application as strong as possible.
