Apply – Bill 7 Award

$1,000 Scholarship Available in 2021

Students in their graduating year in a high school in Northern Ontario are eligible for the
$1,000 James S. Miller Memorial Scholarship.

Jim Miller passed away in August 2007 while hiking the high country along Lake
Superior’s north shore. Like the white pine swaying in the winds that sweep that land, Jim
stands tall, leaving a lasting impression on hearts and minds of the many who knew him.
The James S. Miller Memorial Scholarship is awarded annually to a student who
intends to pursue post-secondary education in natural resources or a related field (e.g.
fish and wildlife, forestry, etc.) – a pursuit that Jim saw as so critical to present and future

Recipients will be from Northern Ontario – the part of this world that held such a special
place in Jim’s heart, and where he spent his career making a difference. Demonstrated
desire and commitment, not academic marks, will be decisive factors in selecting
recipients – a reflection of Jim’s ability to sense the potential in others.
The scholarship is administered by Forests Ontario, an organization dedicated to raising
awareness and understanding of Ontario’s forests. The association delivers Ontario
Envirothon, a hands-on environmental education program for high school students that
promotes stewardship of natural resources. In 2009, the Ontario Professional Foresters
Association partnered with Forests Ontario to sponsor the award.

The deadline for submission of applications is May 31, 2021.
Completed applications to be submitted to: tom.croswell@ontario.ca
Forests Ontario is a registered non-profit charity in Ontario. (Charitable Registration
Number 89857 2862 RR 0001)

Entrance Award Scholarship Application Now Open   Dalhousie awards more than 2000 scholarships and bursaries to your students every year through our Entrance Award application each year. These awards range from $500- $41,900 are available for students starting in their first year.

Entrance awards are based on more than just your student’s academic achievements. Dalhousie also offers awards for your student’s leadership and extracurricular involvement, community service, financial need and cultural identity. All students are encouraged to apply!

Below we’ve included some of the most frequently asked questions about entrance awards to get your students started:

1. What is the minimum eligibility to receive an entrance award?

To be considered, your students must be entering Dalhousie directly from high school. Typically, they need an 80% admission average or 26 predicted IB Diploma points. However, if they are able to demonstrate financial need you may still be considered for an award.

2. How do your students apply for entrance awards?

How students apply depends on whether they’ve already been accepted into a Dalhousie program or if they’re still waiting on your admission decision. For more information refer your students to dal.ca/entranceawards and follow the steps listed under How to apply.

3. When is the deadline to apply for entrance awards?

To be considered for entrance awards students must submit both their application
for admission and your entrance award application before March 1.

4. Are there funding opportunities available after first year?

Yes. If students are studying at one of Dalhousie’s Halifax campuses they will automatically be considered for in-course scholarships every year if they do not hold a renewable scholarship. If they’re studying at the Agricultural Campus in Truro, N.S., they must apply for in-course awards each September. Bursaries are also available to students through our Bursary Program to provide funds to assist students in financial need.   We have just launched our new Tuition Fee Calculator to allow students a better estimate of how much their Dalhousie education will cost for a year.   If you have any questions about entrance awards or bursaries, connect with the Awards Office by emailing awards@dal.ca
