More students eligible for provincial scholarships

first_imgRecent changes made by the B.C. Ministry of education are allowing scholarship funds to reach more students.Beginning this school year, scholarship selections will shift to focus on students’ performance on grades 10, 11, 12 provincial exams.- Advertisement -The change was instilled in order to ensure scholarship money reaches the maximum number of students within the province, making post-secondary education more affordable for students and their families.Previously, scholarships were awarded based on student’s grade 12 exam marks, taken from mandatory and optional provincial exams.A lack of students writing these optional grade 12 provincial exams, has forced the government to re-examine the way scholarships are awarded.Minister of Education George Abbott says “B.C.’s exam program continue to be one of the most rigorous in Canada. Our students compete globally, and we know one of the best ways we can support their bright future is through a solid post-secondary education. That’s why we’ve modernized our provincial scholarship criteria to better assist and reward students in their pursuit of higher education.”Advertisementlast_img read more
