We’re proud to support students at every stage of their educational endeavours – particularly in the pursuit of post-secondary education. We offer the following scholarships to high school students throughout Atlantic Canada.
Primrose Scholarship at the University of New Brunswick Saint John
The Primrose Scholarship is an undergraduate entrance award that was established in 1999. It is awarded annually to an undergraduate from the University of New Brunswick Saint John campus. This $5,000 scholarship recognizes academic achievement, community involvement and athletic leadership.
Applicants are required to send a cover letter requesting consideration, a resume, their latest high school transcript and a 500-word essay on a topic chosen by the University. For more information, visit http://www.unbsj.ca/primrose/
