Ministry of Education Scholarships and Awards ReviewFebruary 26, 2015
The Ministry of Education has been providing scholarships and awards to BC’s high school students since 1987. There have been some changes over the years, but the time is right to conduct a comprehensive review of the program. The focus of the review will be to look at the current scholarships and awards program to find innovative approaches to recognize student learning and achievement, with an attention to skills training.
The Ministry of Education is seeking feedback from parents, students, employers, school counsellors, teachers, and administrators about updating and modernizing the Grade 10-12 scholarships and awards. The goal of the review is to better recognize and support students’ accomplishments and circumstances. It is expected that the consultation will be completed and a new program designed in the 2015/16 school year.
The online survey is open from February 3 – March 10, 2015. The feedback will be analyzed and discussed at stakeholder meetings in April 2015 resulting in recommendations to the Ministry. A new program design will be announced this summer and the changes will be phased-in starting in the 2015/16 school year.
