Student Awards, Scholarships and Bursaries

Background

The Lloydminster Public School Division recognizes the value of providing awards, scholarships, and bursaries to students attending its schools.  To this end, other than providing its own awards, the Lloydminster Public School Division is receptive to receiving submissions from individuals, organizations, and corporations which delineate the terms of the proposed award, scholarship, or bursary.

If the award, scholarship, or bursary is approved by the Lloydminster Public School Division, it would be willing, upon request, to serve as the trustee of said award, scholarship, or bursary.

The Principal will cooperate with the donor and administer the granting of such awards, scholarships, and bursaries in an expeditious manner.
