Scholarships and Bursaries Unique to Banff for BCHS Students

Banff's community generously supports our graduating students in their post secondary education through offering scholarships (based on marks) and bursaries (based on financial need). Some are offered by families in remembrance of past staff and students at BCHS. We have not listed ALL awards available to high school graduating students and therefore students should also undertake their own research.
