Developing a portfolio

Using appropriate college and university calendars and financial aid publications, select appropriate sources of non-repayable funding for education, and develop a working portfolio of non-repayable funding to be used for the length of your programs. Determine what application forms and support documentation is required for each scholarship or bursary.

Prepare a draft letter of application for at least one external non-repayable funding source.

If Internet access is available, review the external sources of funding for education using the World Wide Web, starting with government or government-sponsored sites listed at the end of this module.

Remember that scholarships, bursaries, and awards are made possible by generous contributions from individuals and organizations that believe in providing financial assistance to students wishing to pursue an education.

Interview a current student or recent graduate

Think of some questions you could ask a current student. Examples might be:

  • Where did you find the best information?
  • Where can one look for information on external funding?
  • Were you able to get bursaries? How long did you have to wait for an answer?
