Community Scholarships

Do your best. Be your best. Be whoever you want to be and so much more at Glenlyon Norfolk School—one of western Canada’s leading IB World Continuum Schools.
We are proud to offer two types of GNS Community Scholarships to exceptional new domestic students who are entering the following grades:
  • Grade 6: $5,000 renewable annually
  • Grade 9: Up to $10,000 renewable annually
These scholarships are awarded to students who can clearly demonstrate past positive contributions at their school and/or the larger community in areas such as leadership, volunteerism, athletics, clubs and the arts. Scholarships are automatically renewed annually until graduation provided that the recipient continues to meet or exceed our expectations of contributions to the GNS community.
