Winning Scholarships: A Student's Guide to Entrance Awards at Western Canadian Universities and Colleges

Front Cover
University of Toronto Press, 1994 - Scholarships - 403 pages
Since 1992, Michael Howell's Guides to Entrance awards at Canadian universities and colleges have made him the best source of information for parents and students seriously seeking financial aid for higher education. These guides, each looking at a specific region of Canada, contain a complete listing of entrance awards to post-secondary education offered by universities, colleges, community groups, professional associations, businesses, and other agencies.

In each guide, in addition to listing what aid is available, Howell analyses the type of person institutions give awards to (marks are seldom the only measure), and offers advice on the kind of extracurricular activities and community service that develop the right personal profile. He explains how to create a personal network to improve your chance for success. Howell also evaluates registered education saving plans as a method of financing post-secondary education.

For high-school students and their parents, these guides offer proven, practical advice on one of the greatest challenges of student life: affording it.
