AP 370: Northern Lights School Division Sponsored Student Awards


The Northern Lights School Division No. 69 (NLSD) believes that all students should strive for personal excellence in their academic studies. Students who are diligent in their studies and achieve levels of excellence are eligible to apply for and receive financial rewards that encourage and support their transition to post-secondary education programs.

NLSD believes high schools should communicate scholarship and awards information to eligible students through their academic and career counseling services to ensure that these students are aware of the conditions and deadlines of NLSD sponsored student awards.

NLSD Sponsored Awards

Xerox is providing $1,000 (one thousand dollars) for scholarships to be distributed across the Division. Five $100 (one hundred dollar) scholarships will be given to students attending university, and five $100 (one hundred dollar) scholarships will be distributed to students in the Registered Apprenticeship Program (RAP). The scholarships will be awarded in the names of the Division Staff who have been recognized for their contributions. These staff recognition awards will be announced at the yearly System Focus Day.
