Scholarships, Awards, and Bursaries

Scholarship/Bursary for Grade 12 Students of Croatian Heritage

On behalf of The United Croats of Canada King Tomislav Branch (Croatian Cultural Centre Vancouver), we are providing scholarships and bursaries to deserving grade 12 students of Croatian heritage. At least once parent must be of Croatian ancestry.   Scholarships in the amounts of $500 and $1,000 are available for full time attendance either at a university, college, or a technical/vocational institute. In the event of a large number of qualified applications lesser amounts may be awarded. Scholarships are awarded on the basis of academic merit, involvement within the community and written essay. They are intended for initial post-secondary schooling and are not available for graduate work. All successful applicants will have previously demonstrated a capacity for high achievement. This will be established through the applicant’s school transcript, two written letters of reference one must be from the applicant’s teacher(s) or school counselor and a secondary letter may be from work, volunteer experience, or extracurricular activity, and a short essay on a topic chosen by the committee. Scholarships are normally provided for a term of one year or less. Applicants may reapply for a scholarship but if funds are limited preference will be given to students in their initial year of post-secondary schooling.   Bursaries in the amounts of $500 and $1,000 are available for full time attendance either at a university, college or a technical/vocational institute. In the event of a large number of qualified applications lesser amounts may be awarded. They are intended for initial post-secondary schooling and are not available for graduate work. Bursaries are awarded on the basis of financial need and previously demonstrated capacity for successful completion of a program of studies. Capacity for successful completion of a course of studies will be established through the applicant’s school transcript, two written letters of reference from the applicant’s teacher(s) or school counselor and a secondary letter may be from work, volunteer experience or extracurricular activity, and a short essay on a topic chosen by the committee. The applicant must also complete an application form that provides their financial background as well as that of their parents. This is partly accomplished by providing a copy of the family’s last completed income tax return(s). The information from the income tax return(s) will be held in the strictest of confidence. Bursaries are normally provided for a term of one year or less.
