At Virtual Elementary School (VES), we believe that access to a quality education is something everyone should have. We also understand that there can be economic barriers to remote education. Our mission as a school is to empower students, and a key part of this mission is ensuring that our courses are accessible to Canadian students from a wide range of socio-economic backgrounds.
The Virtual Elementary School Bursary was designed to encourage motivated, Canadian students to take courses with VES wherever they are located, regardless of their financial background. Through assisting families with tuition fees, VES hopes to set students on a path to reach their future education goals.
The VES Bursary is issued three times per year in the months of April, August, and December. One candidate will be chosen each submission period to receive this award. Applications are due on or before the 15th of the month in which the bursary will be granted. The Awards Selection Committee will convene to review all applicants, and applicants will be notified about the status of the bursary via email.
VES awards this bursary based on a family’s financial need. The applicant who is granted the bursary will receive the full tuition for up to two independent courses or one facilitated course. This bursary is non-transferable, and successful applicants must use the bursary within 90 days from the date it is issued. Recipients can only receive this bursary once per calendar year. Our hope is that recipients remain in contact even after completing their course to ensure that the bursary has been helpful in maximizing their chances of success.
The next application deadline is approaching quickly! Applications for the next VES bursary are due on or before April 15th, 2022.
