Exceptional students are deserving of a Shawnigan education regardless of financial means
— Founder C.W. Lonsdale's vision for Shawnigan Lake School
Founder's Awards (Financial Aid)
At Shawnigan, bringing the most promising, well-rounded students to campus for a co-educational experience that forges them intellectually, socially and personally — no matter their background — is the core of our mission. Our need-based financial aid program ensures that Shawnigan remains within reach for every extraordinary student, and as such is an expression of our community’s most enduring values.
In keeping with the vision of C.W. Lonsdale, financial aid is now known as Founder’s Awards.
