Braefoot Community Association offering bursaries

Bursaries awarded to students attending any accredited post-secondary educational institution in Canada on a full-time basis

Applications are now being accepted for the 2015 Braefoot Bursaries.

The Braefoot Community Association honours community-minded post-secondary students with bursaries, which help students achieve their educational goals.

The bursaries are awarded to students attending any accredited post-secondary educational institution in Canada on a full-time basis who can demonstrate a connection with the Greater Victoria community, such as growing up or going to school in the area. Bursaries will be awarded based on academic achievement, financial need, being a positive role model for youth, as well as volunteer and community activities. The deadline to apply is Sept. 21.

Bursary recipients will be honoured at the Friends of Braefoot Dinner Gala, Oct. 28 at CFB Esquimalt’s Wardroom. To date, Braefoot has awarded more than 200 bursaries and has established a bursary fund of over $226,000.
