Why is the ideal time to start this process in Grade 10?
1. Begin The Transformation Before It Is Too Late
We help students who WANT to make an impact, be financially responsible, and get a great education. You won't magically wake up one day and be this type of student who has the right volunteer, the writing skills, the grades and the knowledge you need to be successful with scholarships. These skills take years to develop, and starting the Scholarship Preparation Program is about becoming the type of student who can win scholarships in Grade 12 and throughout their four years of post-secondary.
2. Your Grade 12 Year Is Too Overwhelming:
The biggest feedback from our Grade 12 parents and students is that they wish they had started this program earlier because beginning in Grade 12 is very stressful. Our students that win $50k-$100k have been working on their eligibility since Grade 10. Our grade 10 students will have the best opportunity to plan for success because they are planning for Grade 11 and Grade 12. If you missed Grade 10, you need to start as soon as possible.
3. Your Last Three Years of Experience Matter Most:
It is your most recent three years of experience that matters most to scholarship committees and university admissions teams, so if you start in Grade 10, you have the time you need to build your best three-year resume.
4. If I Am In Grade 11, 12 or University Am I Too Late?
No. Although you are behind, scholarship opportunities remain available throughout your post-secondary education and we have many senior high school students and university students also enter this program. The key is not waiting any longer to ensure that you don't miss scholarship opportunities and that you are a strong candidate.
