Grade 12 Scholarship Prep


Grade 12 Prep Package

In this package, I help grade 12 students gain the knowledge and the confidence to master the scholarship process. Take away the guesswork, frustration and stress of scholarships, plus save loads of time using my experience, tips, and strategies!  

This package is a fit for motivated students who have solid grades, volunteer experience, and a leadership role.

This package is also suitable for students who need advice with their personal statements for admission.  

Here's some of what's included:

  1.  A 90 minute, one-to-one personalized strategy session with Janet MacDonald where we review your goals and your experiences, and all of your biggest scholarship and/or admission personal statement questions are answered

  2. A review of your activities with strategic advice on how to highlight your best experiences for the scholarships you are applying to

  3.  A personalized essay review where Janet provides specific feedback on your essay(s).  We'll meet again after the review to discuss my comments and suggestions. 

  4.  An instructional video on the best strategies to find scholarships

  5.  Helpful resources, such as templates and guides, based on your specific needs 

I will be accepting a limited number of students for the Grade 12 Prep Package in August 2024.  

You will work with me in a one-to-one personalized strategy session. We'll discuss your goals, and your past and current activities and experiences. Using my knowledge and experience, I'll ask you the right questions to help you plan your strategy for applications and teach you how to highlight your best experiences.  By learning this skill now, you can use it on applications not only in grade 12, but throughout university and beyond.  

After the strategy session, the student may submit draft essays (up to 1000 words total) for my review.  I will make written comments and suggestions for improvement.  This is an excellent way to put your learning into action, and create content you can use on subsequent applications.  We'll meet one-to-one again after I have reviewed your essay to discuss my comments and suggestions.  


This is a highly personalized program. I work with students and their parents/supporters across Canada.  All sessions are online via Zoom video conference.  


Grade 12 is your best opportunity for scholarships in your lifetime. Don't miss out on this golden window of opportunity.  


I can help you get control of scholarships.  Students who complete this package will have a clear focus, and have the knowledge and confidence to take action, apply, and win scholarships!

Please note: Although I may suggest scholarships for you, I do not find scholarships for students. I provide an instructional video on how best to find scholarships. I teach you how to find them for yourself to learn the process so you can do it on your own throughout university.  I do, however, know of many scholarships and I may be able to suggest one or more to you.  

Interested in working with me?  I'd love to hear from you!

Please email me at for more information and a list of potential meeting times. Daytime, evening and weekend meeting times are available.  Once a meeting time has been set, an invoice will be emailed to you.  Your meeting will be confirmed once payment is made.
