Alexander Rutherford Scholarship

Mrs. Doerksen has received lots of excellent questions about the Alexander Rutherford Scholarship recently. Here are a few FAQs:

  1. Do I need to apply for this now? Is there a deadline?
    1. Students do not apply until after their grade 12 marks are finalized. Usually the site opens for applications on August 1. There are no deadlines. Students need to wait until they have completed any upgrading that they are planning on doing and until they have confirmed registration for post-secondary. Students who are taking a “gap year” should wait to apply until they are ready to start their post-secondary journey.

 

  1. I missed getting a high enough average in grade 10 and/or 11 by a small amount. Is there anything I can do?
    1. Averages for determining whether a student qualifies are not based on the year that the student takes the course. Any course with a course number in the 1000s will count for grade 10, 2000s for grade 11 and 3000s for grade 12. If a student missed the qualification level for a particular grade they could look at taking an option course now. Getting a high mark in that course will improve their average for that previous grade and could allow them to qualify for the scholarship.
  1. I know other people got higher marks than me. How can I compete with them?
    1. The Alexander Rutherford Scholarship is not competitive. Anyone who meets the criteria and applies automatically gets the money.
  1. If I am unsure if I qualified how can I find out?
    1. If students would like to check to see if they qualified for their grade 10 and grade 11 years they can ask their grade administrator. There is no harm in applying, even if not sure. Student Aid will do the calculations and send the check to the student if they qualify.
