Being awarded a scholarship is a great way for students to be recognized for all their hard work, but you will not get a scholarship if you do not apply. Finding scholarships can be a daunting task, but it is worth the effort. This compiled list is a starting point for students and families to investigate scholarships, but is in no way comprehensive. Families are encouraged to search out additional scholarship opportunities. 

When asking someone to write a reference letter for you, it is important that they know all the wonderful things you have done, both in and outside of school. This form will help you organize your accomplishments to provide to the individual who has agreed to write you a letter.

Kayla from the UofR will be at Thom Collegiate’s Career Center and Thursday, March 5  9:00-3:20.

She will answer any questions you may have about how to apply for scholarships on the UR SAMS (Scholarship and Awards Management System).


The application deadline is March 15th.


The award competition is now open on SAMS and students can begin to apply for entrance scholarships. 

Getting to know how to use such a big, new, database can be confusing and intimidating – that is why we have created great videos and instruction manuals to teach students how to use the Scholarships and Awards Management System (SAMS).


The UofR also will be offering four evening sessions on campus in the Dr John Archer Library, Regina Room (LY 107.32) on the following dates:

  • Feb 18 (5:00-7:00 PM)
  • Feb 26 (5:00-7:00 PM)
  • Mar 5 (5:00-7:00 PM) 
  • Mar 9 (5:00-7:00 PM)
