Educational Grants

As of September 1 2013 the Post-Secondary Education Grant and the Mature Student Bursary will be combined as one grant called the Continuing Education Grant. The Gwaii Trust Society Board places a strong priority on assisting high school, post-secondary and mature students in their educational guests. The education “bundle of programs” includes a High School Scholarship Program, University Tours, and a Continuing Education Grant. The Board of Directors noted that trades are as equally valued when pursing post-secondary opportunities as the academics and encourage students to apply for the grants.

Post-Secondary Institution Tours Grant

/applicant-uploads/Board_meeting_schedules.docxThe Gwaii Trust Society established the Post-Secondary Institution Tours for local high school students on Haida Gwaii to experience post-secondary institutions off-island prior to graduating from grade twelve.

School Food Grant

Applications must be received no later than one month before the beginning of your project, unless otherwise specifically stated.

In 2011 the Gwaii Trust Society established a School Food Grant for all schools on Haida Gwaii. Its main focus is about making nutritious and culturally appropriate food accessible to all children.  

High School Education Grant

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 policies of the HSSC committee, each graduating student from ALM, George M. Dawson and Queen Charlotte Secondary School are eligible. High school students are encouraged to apply at their respective high school on Haida Gwaii.

Continuing Education Grant

The Continuing Education Grant was developed to encourage all Haida Gwaii residents’ access to educational opportunities, both on and off Haida Gwaii. The Continuing Education Program is open to all residents of Haida Gwaii.
