Each year The Ontario Hyundai Scholarships
will publicize the availability of the scholarships and the
application process and the deadline to apply through local media
sources and Durham School District Guidance Councillors with
co-operation from The Durham District School Board. The scholarship
application form and all the required supporting documentation must
be submitted by the deadline date to qualify.
The Scholarships Review Committee will
look at each application and select the possible recipients. The
committee will interview each of these potential candidates prior to
announcing The Ontario Hyundai Scholarship winners.
The funds will be distributed from The
Ontario Hyundai Scholarships to the the schools to be credited
against the student's tuition accounts.
The Ontario Hyundai Scholarships will be
renewable each year for up to four years. In order to renew the
scholarship students must provide proof to The Scholarships Review
Committee of continued full time enrollment (80% plus of a full
course load) in a Ontario post-secondary institution.
All funding for The Ontario Hyundai
Scholarships is provided by the Gregory Mason Family Foundation.
Scholarship recipients must be FULL TIME
STUDENTS attending an accredited Ontario College, Community College
or University. The scholarship money will be paid directly to the
college or university once a year for a maximum of four years at one
thousand dollars ($1,000.00) per year.
In no instance will a cash sum be
presented to the student. Applicants must be registering for the Fall
term and entering their first year of post-secondary studies. Any
recipient of this award who for whatever reason does not proceed to
college, community collage or university will lose their right to the
scholarship and our independent panel of judges will select the next
candidate in line for the award. If it is determined that no
candidate is deserving of the (outstanding) award then the cash value
of the unclaimed award will remain in the foundation.
Ontario Hyundai Scholarships are academic awards. They apply to
tuition and academic fees first and foremost. If these expenses are
covered and there are funds remaining from our scholarships, these
funds can be applied to books and on-campus room and board. The
intent of The Ontario Hyundai Scholarships is to pay expenses as
designated and outlined by the educational institution.
