Black Press offering business scholarships

Black Press offering $5000 business scholarships for high school students; deadline is Feb. 28, apply now.

It’s that time of the year, when graduates are filing off their report cards and transcripts to the programs and universities they’re eyeing as their new four-year homes.

And after all that work just to get in, to beat the odds and a whole lot of other applicants, they could use some aid.

That’s why Black Press will be supplying 37 freshman students accepted to the University of Victoria’s Peter B. Gustavson School of Business with $5000 annual scholarships – for students in several communities and districts Black Press’s newspapers serve.

Applying for the scholarship is simple: every high school student accepted into the School of Business will be automatically considered for the $5000, but the deadline to apply is Feb. 28, 2015.

More information can be found on UVic’s website.
