Rutherford Scholarship is not competitive, you must meet the criteria, be enrolled in a post-secondary school (somewhere in the world) AND apply for it. There is no deadline, but when you apply will affect when you can expect to receive your scholarship. You don’t need to apply the first year out of high school, it will ‘wait’ for your application.

Weekly Drop-In Tutorials and Diploma Prep
Drop-In Tutorials: Low-Cost Tutoring by Certified Alberta Teachers
In a friendly and non-judgmental way, we will help students with homework or assignment questions, clear up difficulties with topics learned in class, or offer last-minute help prior to exams or quizzes.
Students are not required to stay for the full two hours but they are welcome to do so. This is a great service for students who need someone around in case they run into trouble with their homework, or who find a private tutor to be too expensive.
