Scholarships, Awards and Bursaries

A map, some money, and the future of Manitoba.

At Career Trek we are fond of saying that our programming helps to take the “guessing” out of the game of choosing an education and career path. Our programming provides students with the map that helps them to reach their goals.  Maps alone, however, are not always enough. Sometimes you need money. That is why Career Trek is committed to support young Manitobans and help connect them with financial resources that can assist them on their journey.

What are some of the financial resources that you can take advantage of?

 Scholarships & Awards

Scholarships are primarily based upon achievement (academic, athletic, or otherwise). Awards usually involve multiple criteria such as academic achievement, demonstrated financial need and school or community involvement. Many scholarships and awards go un-awarded every year because students don’t bother to apply. Remember you miss 100% of the shots you don’t take.
