Team Cornwall has expanded its bursary program, which will be good news to local youth looking to continue their studies at post-secondary institutions.
“We have some extraordinary youth in our community and our bursaries seek to recognize their efforts in making Cornwall a great place to be,” says Peter Gault, Chair of Team Cornwall. “We hope that after their studies they will become community leaders in Cornwall.”
There are a total of nine bursaries and one award available as follows:
Team Cornwall Youth Volunteer Bursary
The Youth Volunteer Bursary honours extraordinary Cornwall residents whose volunteer achievements have contributed to the well-being of their community and fellow residents.
There are three (3) bursaries of $1500 each made available each year. The program is fully funded by Kawartha Credit Union.
Team Cornwall High School Bursary
There are six (6) bursaries of $400 each, with one bursary made available each year to a graduating student at a Cornwall secondary school:
- Joseph’s Catholic Secondary School
- Holy Trinity Catholic Secondary School
- École secondaire catholique La Citadelle
- Cornwall Collegiate and Vocational School
- École secondaire publique L’Heritage
- Lawrence Secondary School
Team Cornwall Community Award – St. Lawrence College
This award is issued annually to an entrance student enrolled full-time in any program on the Cornwall campus of St. Lawrence College. Applicants must demonstrate above average academic achievement and contribution to community service, and be residents of the City of Cornwall or the United Counties of Stormont, Dundas & Glengarry.
“We are fortunate to have excellent partners in this program such as Kawartha Credit Union,” noted Mr. Gault. “We look forward to presenting the awards later in the school year.”
