Community Scholarships

Great Kids WANTED!

Glenlyon Norfolk School is proud to offer our GNS Community Scholarships, which provide $10,000 entrance scholarships for new domestic Grade 8 to 12 students. These scholarships are renewable annually, provided that each recipient meet or exceed our expectations in terms of contributions to the GNS community.

How do I apply?

Get creative! We want to receive your best proposal for why you’d make a great Community Scholar, in a format of your choosing. Make a 60-90 second video, write an essay, create a work of art or come up with another unique way to present yourself and show off your unique personality. Make sure that your submission answers:

  • Who you are, what grade you’re in and where you currently attend school;
  • What you enjoy most about school; and
  • How you’ll contribute to the GNS community.

Looking for inspiration? Here is the video submission from one of last year's Community Scholarship recipients.

Application for a Community Scholarship also requires the applicant to submit the following to the Admissions Office:

  • an application for admission indicating interest in the scholarship program (to access our online application, please submit an inquiry form and specify that you would like to access our application form);
  • copies of two report cards (the most recent year-end and most recent);
  • two letters of reference (one academic-based and one activity-based).

To apply or learn more about this exciting initiative, please contact the GNS Admissions Office at admissions@mygns.ca, or complete the inquiry form to the right. Good luck!
