Students from Bruce, Grey and Huron counties can now apply for post-secondary scholarships as part of Bruce Power’s annual Scholarship Program.
Once again this year, Bruce Power will award $500 to 100 applicants who are pursuing post-secondary education or a trade, for a total of $50,000 in scholarships. The 100 recipients will fall into four different categories, including university (40), college/skilled trades (35), self-identified as Indigenous, a visible minority or who lives with a disability (15), and special considerations (10).
All applicants for the seventh annual Scholarship Program must read the eligibility requirements outlining the requirements, and then complete the online form.
Bruce Power has also opened applications for its third annual Indigenous Scholarship for Post-secondary Education Beyond First Year. Through 2019, Bruce Power will award $2,000 to 10 students from our local Indigenous communities of Saugeen and Nawash First Nations, Historic Saugeen Métis and Region 7 of the Métis Nation of Ontario.
Applicants must, in 500 words or less, explain why they are taking their selected program, and how they see their education furthering their life’s plan. Learn more here.
“Education is the foundation for success, and we want to play a small role in encouraging local youth to pursue higher learning,” said Mike Rencheck, Bruce Power’s President and CEO. “Whether or not these students work for Bruce Power in the future or explore careers in other fields, we wish them nothing but success.”
Applications for both post-secondary scholarships are due by June 21.
Bruce Power will also award thousands in elementary and secondary school awards across Bruce, Grey and Huron for Grade 8 and Grade 12 graduates.
