QUESTION: If I win in the top division and therefore are able to accept a scholarship, how do I access it when I register at the University?
ANSWER: After each contest is over CPF PEI forwards all the winners’ names to each University or Collége. You, therefore, do not have to choose a school until you are ready to attend. When that time comes, contact that registrar, explain that you are looking to access a CPF PEI scholarship/bursary and they will have the amount and your name on file. They will then apply the scholarship money to your tuition.
