This year, the CSCB received many extraordinary scholarship application packages from candidates across the country. The CSCB Scholarship Committee had a difficult decision to make in light of the many exceptionally talented young people who put their names forward.
The CSCB Scholarship Committee is pleased to announce the winners of the CSCB Guy Graveline Scholarship, the CSCB National Scholarship, and our newest scholarship for students who are already engaged in pursuing their post secondary studies for 2020.
