2014-2015 Post-Secondary Bursary  

 

             Details

Number and value of bursaries awarded will depend upon funds available. Recipients will be selected at random from among applicants. 
Only one bursary will be awarded to an individual.

 

             Completed applications must be received by August 13, 2015, including arrangements to have copies of post-secondary transcripts sent to the

 

               Secretary

              Successful applicants MUST attend a personal interview with the Rotary Bursary Committee before the end of August 2013 in Parry Sound.

 

              Bursaries will be paid directly to post-secondary institutions in September, once proof of registration in applicable year’s program is received.  A bursary is in effect a gift – not a loan – and in this case, the bursary is awarded independently of other awards, scholarships, or loan.
