The bursary will be awarded based primarily on two criteria demonstrated financial need, and community involvement.

C) Programs of study may be academic, vocational, or technical at an accredited post-secondary institution in Ontario.

E) Acceptable grades (65% or higher) are required.

Awards range from $1,000 to $3,000. We will award up to $100,000.

Selection and Award Process:

1. The Awards Committee will review all applications and take into consideration the demonstrated financial need, community involvement, personal statement of special circumstances, grades, etc. All decisions are final and will be conveyed in an email.

2. If a Foundation award is approved, it will be disbursed directly to your credit union account.

3. You may be asked to attend your local branch for a photographic presentation which may be used in the Foundation's and/or credit union's newsletter or on the website as this is a means of showing the donors their contributions are at work.
