Project Description
Student bursaries are directed primarily at women with demonstrated financial need to upgrade their education and pursue post secondary education toward viable employment. Awards also encourage girls in Grade 11 to pursue careers in science and technology. The students receiving the award speak to the Rotary membership and describe their avenue of study, hopes and the difference the award makes in their lives. The awards are provided annually to students at NAIT, Norquest, MacEwan, Employabilities, University of Alberta - Fine Arts, WISEST and endowments at MacEwan, Athabasca and Concordia. Starting 2013-14 an award will be provided for post secondary education at the Amiskwaciy Academy.
