With the school year quickly coming to an end, ScholarTree.ca has made a concerted effort to add as many scholarships to the platform as we could find. May is the end of peak scholarship season so there are a lot of awards with upcoming deadlines.

We currently have 61 scholarships that equate to 367 awards and a total of $960,500 application period ending this month. So there is still time for students who have put off applying to scholarships throughout the school year.

Students can sort their scholarship list (https://scholartree.ca/scholarships) by the deadline by using the sort by option at the top of the page.

Have a great day,
