Langley Township will offer scholarships to private high school grads

Langley Township will now give out scholarships to graduating students at all Langley high schools. Scholarships had been available only to students in public schools, but on March 31, council decided to make them available to students at private schools.

There will be $1,000 scholarship awards provided to Credo Christian and Langley Christian Schools, and $500 scholarship awards going to Aldergrove Christian School, Fraser Valley Adventist Academy, King’s School, and Wytecliff Agile Learning Centre — Langley.

Township staff will work with each school to develop criteria for the grant award, which will go to Township residents with a balance of academic and athletic achievements, and involvement in the arts, culture, and the community.

For many years, the Township of Langley has been awarding scholarships to students graduating from Langley’s public schools.

On March 31, Langley Township council announced changes to the municipal community grant policy.
