SCHOLARSHIPS & FINANCIAL AID

 

WIC’s reputation consistently attracts applicants from over 35 elementary schools in Montreal, St Laurent, Laval and the West Island. Building our scholarship and financial aid funds ensures the financial support and recognition that will allow us to continue to attract and retain students who are well-rounded, community-driven and hard-working. Over the last 4 decades, over 250 families have benefited from scholarships and financial aid. Together we can provide students with scholarships and financial aid so that anyone who dreams of studying at WIC can be given that opportunity.   Donate now!

The  Martin Bailly Bursary Fund  helps students who need some level of financial assistance.  New and existing WIC students (secondary II – V) in need are welcome to apply. The amount of financial assistance can vary per student and is dependent on the funds available and number of requests per year. 

The Rita and Victor Bertrand Foundation Inspiring Generations Bursary  began in 2016 and is open to incoming secondary I students only. Students are to apply for the bursary at the same time as they apply for admissions. Each bursary of $5,000 per year ($25,000 total bursary) is awarded to deserving students for the duration of their WIC education. There are a limited number of bursaries available. 

 

How to apply

 

We have retained the services of Apple Financial Services to assess all requests received. Both parents must complete the online application and submit the required documents. Apple provides an objective analysis of each application, with a recommendation of what the family should reasonably contribute towards the total fees. The Financial Aid Committee then reviews the results and approves the final grants, subject to the availability of funds. Families are notified in writing of the committee’s decision.

The financial aid granted is of one-year duration. Families must reapply each year if their financial need persists.

The College trusts that the information provided on the application is accurate and truthful. Any evidence to the contrary will put the student’s standing at WIC in jeopardy and risk a repeal, retroactively, of all the financial aid awarded.

To apply for the aid, please enter your request online at  https://www.applefinancialservices.ca/instructions/before_applying.  There are instructions on how to complete the application and their customer service team is available to answer any questions you may have.

The portal for the 2021-22 school year will be open as of September 28th 2020, and the deadline to apply is October 9th 2020.
