Wessex Scholarship


The Wessex Scholarship is presented annually to commemorate the visit by His Royal Highness The Prince Edward, Earl of Wessex to the IWK Health Centre in November 2015. A $5,000 award, this scholarship recognizes the important role community service has played in supporting the IWK in providing exceptional care. The Wessex Scholarship is awarded to a deserving individual each June by the IWK Board of Directors and the IWK Foundation Board of Trustees.

The application deadline has been extended to Monday, April 10, 2017. All applications must be received in full by the IWK by Monday, April 10, 2017. However, official transcripts will be accepted after that date as long as they are postmarked by April 12, 2017. Note: if you are unable to include your official transcript as part of your submission on April 10, you must include a scanned copy or unofficial record of marks until the official copy follows.
