The Entrance Awards application for the 2020-21 school year will be available on this page at the beginning of November 2019.
Entrance Awards are grouped into two distinct categories of Scholarships and Bursaries.
Entrance scholarships are competitive and are awarded to students who exhibit sound academic achievement, community involvement, good character and who otherwise meet the criteria and terms of the scholarship. Recipients are chosen based on the scholarship criteria and independently of financial need.
Entrance bursaries are needs-based and are awarded to students with demonstrated financial need who exhibit sound scholastic achievement, good character, who have shown a great interest in participating in the Luther College High School community and who otherwise meet the criteria and terms of the bursary.
Financial Assistance is separate from our Entrance Awards. However, families who are applying for an entrance bursary must also complete the Financial Assistance application. Please note that all financial and application information is kept strictly confidential. The Financial Assessment Application fee is $50. While all families can apply for Financial Assistance, it is a requirement for those applying for an entrance bursary.
Entrance Award Application Requirements:
- The application deadline for both the Entrance Awards application and the Financial Assistance application is March 1, 2020. Applications will open in November 2019.
