Financial Assistance

Financial Assistance

  • Linden Christian School awards a number of bursaries each year based on financial need.
  • The Phyllis Cook Memorial Award is a tuition support award being introduced in 2024 in Senior Years. This tuition credit is valued at $1500 per year and is open to all current and new LCS students going into Grades 9 through 12 in the fall of 2024.  In subsequent years, the award will go to a student going into Grade 9.
  • More information on bursaries and the Phyllis Cook Memorial Award can be found below.

The Bursary Fund

Student bursary assistance is awarded yearly based on financial need and the amount of funds available in the Bursary Fund. The goal of the bursary program is to offer partial support of tuition payments for families with demonstrated financial need.  Generally, bursary support ranges from 25-50% of tuition.  Bursaries are awarded annually, so families need to reapply each year.

Bursary applications can be requested from the Admissions Office after student(s) have been accepted and enroled at LCS.  Our application procedure includes a standardized form and financial need evaluation to consider applications consistently.  There is also consideration for unique circumstances, such as illness or job loss.

Bursary applications are reviewed annually by the Bursary Committee in May and June.  Applicants are emailed in June as to the committee’s decision. All applications and inquiries are strictly confidential.

To be eligible for financial assistance, you must be filing a Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) tax return. If you are applying for a bursary, it is recommended that you submit your CRA tax return as early as you can to avoid delays in receiving your Notice of Assessment.

For the 2024-2025 school year, bursary applications are due on May 6, 2024.

If you have questions about financial assistance available, or if you would like to request an application, please contact Joanne Ritchie in the Admissions Office at 204-989-6739 or by email [email protected].


The Phyllis Cook Memorial Award

In memory of Linden’s founding Principal, Mrs. Phyllis Cook, a Senior Years tuition support award is available to enrolled students. The award is designed to offset the recipient’s tuition fees through high school at LCS. The selection will be based on the student’s desire for a Christian high school education. 

The annual award will be a $1500 tuition credit (approximately 20% of SY tuition fees) and is considered renewable over each year the student attends high school at LCS. For year 1 – the 2024-2025 school year, four awards will be available – one for each of Grades 9, 10, 11 and 12.  As each Grade 12 award winner graduates, this opens the opportunity for a new recipient in Grade 9.  The awards are renewable through each year of high school, but subject to annual review.  

Application information will be available here by April 19. Please contact Kristen Kroeker at [email protected] if you have questions.
