Hello, everyone! I got my midterms sent in so now I will have a little more time to be writing again. School will be the number one priority, though, so I will do my best to be active here but until school is finished, it might not be super active. I have lots of new post ideas, though, and can’t wait to share it with you all!
Scholarships have been a bit of a struggle in the journey to university. They either require you to have done something very extraordinary ( which is definitely justifiable! ) or it seems like the places are just getting you to do their work for them. It’s been overwhelming with the amounts of scholarships available and trying to figure out what ones are actually worth pursuing.
Scholarships in Canada and some websites to find them
It’s worth looking around as early as possible for scholarships. I started looking into them last fall and most of the smaller ( about $1000 and under ) scholarships required it to be the year in which you’d be attending university. I would thoroughly check out the major scholarships but if you haven’t done anything too crazy it’s not worth spending a lot of time trying to find huge scholarships. Apply instead for as many smaller ones as possible! When you apply to universities and if you meet the scholarship requirements, schools will automatically consider you for some of their scholarships.
Scholarship sites for Canada
I’ve been using yconic.com which I like because they send emails with contests in which you can win money for university. Contests are a good, easy and a generally pretty hassle-free way to try and get some school money. I also use scholarshipscanada.com. They do not send email updates of scholarships I qualify for, which would be nice. Generally, you fill out a very detailed profile and they match you to any available scholarships. It’s not too overwhelming and there are quite a few options out there.
Not finding any
I haven’t actually applied for any yet! There doesn’t seem to be a lot of Applied Health specific ones, nor has there been any school-specific ones. The only scholarships I have found so far have been things like “design 3 T-shirts and you can win $25” ( that was legit one of them! ), or a lot of work for very little money. Once I have finished my schoolwork I will spend a lot more time on scholarships, though, because offsetting costs will be worth it!
Are there any fellow Canadians out there looking for scholarships, what sites do you use? Any other homeschoolers struggling with finding good scholarships?
P.S. It’s Peri
Welcome to the new and improved P.S. It’s Peri! The blog has moved to psitsperi.com where I’ll be able to grow it more than before.
What’s new and what is the same?
Subscriptions are the same, all of the previous posts are the same, tags and comments are all the exact same as before. There is a bit of a new colour pallet, a new look for the blog! It will no longer be able to be reached at psitsperi.wordpress.com and only at psitsperi.com. And that’s it for the changes! Bear with me as I figure this out, but everything should run smoothly.
Thank you, everyone, for following along on my blog journey and helping it grow to new heights! And if you find anything that isn’t working right, please let me know in the comments or by contacting me and I will do my best to fix it.
Yes, I am still alive. Thanks to everyone who still follows, I will be getting back into active blogging and will be documenting my final year of high school, the process of applying to universities and my life along the way!
If you have any questions or things you’d like to see in upcoming posts, please let me know in the comments!
P.S It’s Peri

This blog hit 100 followers yesterday!!!
Oh my gosh, I’m so excited and happy about this, it’s insane! I didn’t think I would hit 100 this fast and I’m so thankful for everyone who reads my posts and for all of the super supportive comments and likes! I feel like I’m Internet famous, even though it’s not that many people, but hey, that is a lot of people I didn’t know a month ago when I started the blog.
Getting to know you
Since there’s now quite a few readers I would like to get to know you all a bit! You can tell me whatever you want about yourself in the comments below and/or answer some or all of these random questions!
- What’s your favourite song as of now? I will probably listen to it!
- What are some of your favourite blogs?
- What country are you from?
- Do you have any pets?
- One wish right now?
Ok it’s kind of hard to think of random questions on the whim but there are some to work with!
Thanks so much again!!
