Scholarship Applicants

Am I eligible to apply for an award?

You are eligible to apply for an award if you answer “yes” to each of the following criteria:

Can I apply for more than one award?

Yes, you may apply to all awards for which you meet the stated criteria. However, we will only grant one award from the Gordon Wiebe Education Fund to an individual within the same granting cycle. This means that you cannot hold more than one award from us at the same time.

How do I apply for an award?

To apply for the Gordon Wiebe Post-Secondary Scholarships, follow the steps outlined below. Give yourself time to review the application information and to prepare required documentation; we recommend getting started as soon as possible.

Share with them the application information as this can help them in drafting something customized to this particular award, giving them plenty of time before the deadline.
