Private schools get Langley scholarships

 

Langley Township will begin offering scholarships to both private and public schools starting this year.

For many years, the Township of Langley has been awarding scholarships to students graduating from Langley’s public schools.

Now students at independent secondary schools within the community will also have the opportunity to earn extra money to help further their education.

On March 31, Township council announced changes to the municipal Community Grant policy that will see an annual $1,000 scholarship award provided to both Credo Christian and Langley Christian Schools, and annual $500 scholarship awards going to Aldergrove Christian School, Fraser Valley Adventist Academy, King’s School, and Wytecliff Agile Learning Centre – Langley.

Township staff will work with each school to develop criteria for the grant award, which will go to Township residents with a balance of academic and athletic achievements, and involvement in the arts, culture, and the community.
