Nanaimo-Ladysmith Schools Foundation

Thanks to the generosity of our donors, the Nanaimo – Ladysmith Schools Foundation (NLSF) is able to offer a number of scholarships, bursaries and awards for graduating students from all School District #68 High Schools.

Students from Dover Bay Secondary, John Barsby Community Secondary, Nanaimo District Secondary, Wellington Secondary, Cedar Secondary, IslandConnectED, and Senior Learning Alternatives are eligible to apply for awards listed in the Scholarship Booklets - Nanaimo.

Students from Ladysmith Secondary are eligible to apply for awards listed in the Scholarship Booklets - Ladysmith.

Selection Committees, consisting of school and community members, meet every spring to select award recipients. The Committees attempt to find the best candidate for each award by reviewing the applications submitted while honoring the donors’ requests.

Scholarships: A scholarship is awarded to a student who has demonstrated outstanding overall academic achievement in all courses required for their field of study.

Bursaries: A bursary is awarded to a student with demonstrated financial need as the major determining factor.

Affiliations and Specialty Awards: These awards have specific criteria that the applicant must meet. Awards with separate application forms are selected by the donor.

For further information concerning these or other awards, please contact the Scholarship contact at your school or the Executive Director of the Foundation, Crystal Dennison @ (250) 753-4074

To apply for any of the local awards listed in the Scholarship Booklets, a qualifying student must complete ONE GENERAL APPLICATION FORM. The General Application Form is your application for ALL the awards in the booklet with the exception of those awards requiring special criteria in their descriptions or requiring an additional application and/or letter/essay.

YOUR APPLICATION FORM IS YOUR PRESENTATION TO THE COMMITTEE

BE SURE IT REPRESENTS YOU WELL!
