Rutherford ScholarshipHigh School Achievement Scholarship

Rutherford Scholarship is not competitive, you must meet the criteria, be enrolled in a post-secondary school (somewhere in the world) AND apply for it.  There is no deadline, but when you apply will affect when you can expect to receive your scholarship.  You don’t need to apply the first year out of high school, it will ‘wait’ for your application.

**Check out any clubs/organizations/sports that you may have been involved in and see if they have scholarships! ex) 4-H, Baseball Alberta, Toastmasters, Culinary classes… just to name a few!
