Scholarships & Awards
ESDH is very fortunate to be the recipient of many awards for our graduating class.
 A list of these awards, the due dates and the requirements to apply is located at https://sites.google.com/a/gnspes.ca/eastern-shore-district-high-guidanc... (this is located in the students services section of the ESDH website) **Please note this list will begin to be populated in late March as the awards from our local organizations arrive. This list gets updated frequently after March, so it is important that students check it regularly.**
 Any student who has received a post secondary scholarship/bursary should inform Ms. Smith in the guidance office. We announce these awards at graduation and include them in the program but it is the student’s responsibility to inform us with a written confirmation of an award by June 19th at 1pm for printing purposes.
