Students in their graduating year in a Queen Charlotte Islands’ high school who wish to apply for either the scholarship to Simon Fraser University or to Hawaii Pacific University should notify their teachers and principal of their intentions as early in their graduating year as possible. The required documentation includes transcripts, letters of recommendation from school officials and community representatives and a letter from the applicant describing their educational and career goals. This documentation is to be forwarded to the President, Fernandez Earle Scholarship Foundation in March of the student’s graduating year.
The Foundation works closely with the schools to develop a short list of candidates who are then invited to a face to face interview with representatives of the Board of Directors of the Foundation.
The Foundation will select the scholarship recipient who will complete an application for the appropriate university. The recipient will forward a transcript of their final grades to the university as soon as they are available. The university will formally announce the scholarship in August.
