Scholarship Resources

The next two months are when the majority of scholarship applications close for students who will be attending post-secondary school next year. 

For students who are still interested in applying to scholarships, this can be an opportunity for those students to gain an additional competitive edge as many students' interest in scholarships has lessened by this time in the school year.

Here are a few resources students who are applying for scholarships can use:

Dave Donley Memorial Scholarship

This is a national scholarship but there is strong interest from the family to have an Alberta student(s) be a recipient. There are two scholarships of $7500 each to be awarded. 

 

This award is not based on financial need or academic merit, but rather on:

  • Passion for technology
  • Problem solving
  • Helping others

These are the criteria that are most important to the Donley family. Tetra Tech is the company where Dave Jr worked and where his co-workers knew him best. Tetra Tech is accepting the applications and have created a Selection Committee to decide on the recipients. 

Aqueduct Foundation is pleased to announce that applications for the 2021 Dave Donley Memorial Scholarship are now being accepted.

There are two awards of $7,500 each available. The scholarship is open to post-secondary students enrolled in an Information Technology or Computer Science program anywhere in Canada. Details and application are attached. Completed applications should be submitted by email to Donleyscholarship@tetratech.com

 

Any questions should be directed to Brent Hallwachs (brent.hallwachs@scotiawealth.com)
