Local Scholarships & Bursaries


Local scholarships & bursaries are offered to our students, thanks to the generous support of several different organizations and individuals in the Cowichan Valley.

Each year we update our scholarship & bursary awards and meet with our grade 12 students at the beginning of February for an orientation on how to apply.

We also have a parent information evening about the scholarship & bursary application process as well.

Below is a list of local awards offered to Chemainus Secondary School students.

This list is updated often so please check back for new information. Award information will be linked as soon as possible.

NOTE: All Scholarship & Bursary application packages are due to the counselling office by 3 pm Friday, March 11, 2022
