District/Authority Scholarship (DAS) Adjudicated by FISA
The Ministry of Education and Child Care distributes 5500 District/Authority Scholarships across school districts and independent school authorities that recognize graduating B.C. students for excellence in their chosen area of interest or strength. Winners receive a $1,250 scholarship voucher to use towards their post-secondary tuition. FISA manages the adjudication process for independent schools through the hard work of four regional committees. 427 DAS awards, in the amount of $1,250 each, are available this year to grade 12 students graduating from Group 1, 2 and 4 independent schools. Students graduating from Independent Online Schools should apply in the region where the school is located.
