One-hundred area students have received a $500 boost towards their post-secondary education thanks to Bruce Power’s scholarship program.

It is the second consecutive year the company has awarded $50,000 in scholarships to students from across Bruce, Grey and Huron counties.

The Scholarship Committee, which consists of 10 employees from a variety of Bruce Power departments, reviewed 606 scholarship applications, which were numbered to eliminate name biases, and no confidential information was shared about the applicants. The new online application form was open to all students attending post-secondary courses in the fall, studying in any discipline including trades apprenticeships and graduate studies. The students were asked to answer four main questions, and were ranked based on their answers.

“We thank all that took the time to apply and wish everyone a great academic year,” said Duncan Hawthorne, President and CEO. “Bruce Power is committed to supporting the education of our community members, and Bruce Power hopes the investments we are making in their future will reap rewards for everyone.”
