Pacific Rim Foundation



The Pacific Rim Foundation relies on a Selection Committee to read, review and rank scholarship applicants. The candidates written responses should express their initiative and motivation both in school participation and commitment to the community.

Criteria the Selection Committee will consider, in no particular order or ranking are:

  1. Community involvement including volunteering. How committed is the student to their community? Does the student demonstrate engagement to the community?
  2. Extracurricular. Does the student participate in team sports, clubs, theatre, music or other groups outside of school time?
  3. Written expression of goals. Does the student demonstrate a sense of their goals and future aspirations?
  4. Sense of Curiosity. How does the student demonstrate motivation? Did their curiosity help form their accomplishments and motivation?
  5. Grades. The student must maintain a "B" average.

In Addition:


Letters of recommendation will be from three different people. Letters from parents or other family members will not be considered.

If the applicant asks a teacher to write a letter of recommendation, the Foundation recommends these letters be of a personal nature and not be written on School letterhead.
