It is the time of year when Dufferin County high school students start to see the light at the end of the tunnel, graduation is coming and a new adventure awaits. Whether that adventure is an apprenticeship, college or university, there may be a scholarship available for you.

The Bill Hill Scholarship offers five $2,500 scholarships to recognize outstanding Dufferin County students who will be pursuing post-secondary education and/or training in Science and Technology (includes Health Sciences, Engineering, and General science programs); Business and Social Sciences; Agriculture; Arts (Fine arts and Liberal arts) and Skilled trades and applied training programs.

Eligible candidates must be a resident of Dufferin County and a current year high school graduate; however, those in the agricultural stream can already be enrolled in a post-secondary program.

Students who wish to apply must submit a completed application along with a 300 word essay, transcripts from grade 11 and the first semester of grade 12, a letter of reference from a staff member of your current school and proof of having been accepted to a post-secondary institution or a training program. 

Completed applications must be received by May 31, 2019. Successful applicants will be notified by the end of June.
