The Greater Essex County District School Board (GECDSB) is committed to providing students with information on the many scholarships and bursaries for which they may apply. The financial aid provided through these scholarships and bursaries can help make post-secondary education more affordable.
 
  • Some awards are based on academic achievement. However, many awards are based on leadership ability, community involvement and a variety of other criteria.
  • A searchable database of scholarships and bursaries is available to GECDSB students. Some of these awards are national or provincial in nature, but many are local and available only to GECDSB students. 
  • Many secondary schools have awards, bursaries and scholarships that are unique to the specific school. That is, only students attending a given school may apply for certain school-specific awards. Check with your Guidance Counsellor for a list of such awards.
  • Please note that some of the applications require transcripts, letters of reference, etc. Many of these documents take a week or more to acquire, so please make the requests for transcripts and letters well before the scholarship or bursary application deadline.
  • Although the database is curated by the GECDSB, the Board is not responsible for content.
  • Please be advised that scholarships and bursary organizations change requirements, deadlines, award amounts, criteria and websites periodically. In some cases, awards may be cancelled. Be sure to check that the organization's information is up-to-date.
