Graduation Awards

Deadline for completion of Graduation Award Microsoft Forms is Sunday, May 1st at 11:45 p.m.

Dear Grade 12 Students:

If you are interested in being considered for any of the Graduation Awards please carefully read the criteria for each award.  

If you meet the criteria please complete the award's corresponding Microsoft Form.   

Please note that several of the awards require a typed activity-based resume that should include a section on each of the following, if applicable: 1) extra-curricular involvement; 2) community service work; 3) any awards you have won, (ie. Honour Roll); 4) any parish involvement you may have; 5) any part-time work. 

Submission of the Microsoft Form represents your consent for the release of your application information to the awards committee for review.

Any scholarships requiring nomination of a student by an awards committee undergo the following process:

  1. All Grade 12 students are encouraged to review the PDF 'Scholarships to Browse' on the Riffel Student Services website and the Graduation Awards page that houses the school-based graduation awards.
  2. If students wish to be considered for any of the awards requiring school committee nomination, they must first confirm that they meet the criteria of such awards.
  3. They will then identify themselves to Student Services by the posted deadline.  Application information is then reviewed with the student and a date is set for submitting necessary documents to an awards committee.
  4. An awards committee convenes to review submissions and arrive at a consensus for Riffel's nominee.
  5. Applicants are notified and thanked for their submissions, and the award winner is notified.
  6. If additional materials are required to complete the application process, Student Services will work with the nominee to ensure that all necessary materials are ready for submission.

Any questions regarding application for Graduation Awards should be directed to

Good luck to all applicants!
