The Gwaii Trust Society Board places a strong priority on assisting high school, post-secondary and mature students in their educational goals.  The Gwaii Trust Board note that trades are equally valued when pursing post-secondary opportunities, and encourage all students to apply.

High School Bursary

In 2006 the Gwaii Trust Society made a commitment to the high schools on Haida Gwaii to establish bursary disbursements on an annual basis.  Based on the criteria developed by the High School Scholarship Committee (consisting of a Gwaii Trust representative, principal, parents, and teachers), students are eligible for a bursary that ranges from a minimum of $300 to a maximum of $3000
