2021 Scholarship & Bursary Application

Instructions

Thank you for considering the Coquitlam Foundation scholarship and bursary program for help in furthering graduating high school students who are in need of financial support to continue their education. Adult learners are also welcome to apply.

While there are nine bursaries and scholarships to choose from and you may choose to apply for each, only one will be awarded per student. However, students may continue to apply each year of their studies if they have not yet been granted an award.

Note: Bursaries must be claimed within three years or be forfeited. The application of this time limit is subject to the Foundation’s consideration of any extenuating circumstances that may prevent the recipient’s claim within the time period.

Deadline

The application window will open December 1, 2020. The deadline for submissions is February 15, 2021 at 4:00pm.

IMPORTANT NOTE: The Coquitlam Foundation reserves the right to disqualify any applications that are incomplete, late in being submitted, illegible and/or do not otherwise follow the submission guidelines.
