Bursaries, Scholarships & Awards

Thousand Islands Secondary School is grateful for the many businesses, service groups, and individuals who make available financial awards and bursaries for our graduates.

This page provides links to the application forms for the various Commencement awards and bursaries.

Commencement awards and bursaries at TISS fall under two categories:

  1. Awards in which the recipients are selected by the TISS Awards Committee. Students need to complete one application form (the “General Application Form”) to be considered for any of the 40-50 awards that fall under this category.


  2. Awards in which the recipients are selected by the individual donors. These awards require a separate application for each as they usually have very specific criteria which you can find on each application form below. Some are school awards in which you are competing against other TISS students only, while others are regional awards in which you are competing against students from schools across the Leeds-Grenville area. These completed application forms will be forwarded to the donors on your behalf. NOTE: Only apply to these awards if you fully meet the criteria. Otherwise, your application will be rejected.

Submission deadline: Unless otherwise stated, all applications are to be submitted to Mr. Cross by email on or before 11:59 p.m. on April 20.

Should additional award opportunities arise throughout the remainder of the year, we will send details to student email accounts.
