One of our goals is to help students pursue their dreams in attending post secondary education. Each year we give a bursary to a student (DRHS and AQV) who excels academically and who also is involved in school and community activities. Family income is also a factor as it is usually an obstacle in the final decision to attend a post secondary institution.

Application for this bursary closes on May 21, 2021

 Selection is based on the following criteria:

·  Family income

·  Academic scores

·  School activities

·  Community activities

·  Hobbies and sports

 This is a $1000.00 bursary for ONE year.The cheque will be issued after the Rotary Club of Dalhousie receives   PROOF OF ATTENDANCE  and  CONFIRMATION OF PAYMENT of second semester.

See attached documents.

Oulton will be hosting an information session about all their programs, admissions requirements, finance, etc.

 

Date: Tuesday, March 30th at 6pm.
