Sable Island Scholarship 2024

Friends of Sable Island Society is again offering $2,000 in scholarships to Nova Scotia students completing Grade 12 in 2024 and pursuing post-secondary education in the fall. Our scholarship is offered annually to promote learning and awareness of Sable Island National Park Reserve.

Two prizes will be offered: $1,500 for the first place entry and $500 for the runner up.

In 2024, we are asking applicants to report on a significant event in Sable Island’s history. This report can be in the form of a mock newspaper article, video news report or simulated podcast. Written applications should be 800-1,000 words; video or audio content should be 3 – 5 minutes long. The goal is to create an accessible and entertaining piece that immerses the reader in a true event from Sable’s past. 

We hope applicants will use our website for ideas, starting with “A Brief History of Sable Island“.

See the Application Form for more details. Submissions are due by 11:59pm on Monday April 29, 2024.

All work will remain the property of the applicant, however, the Society reserves the right to publish this content on our website, and potentially in print, with notice to the applicant.
