Township of Tiny Council recently approved an Education Bursary Program designed to help students who are entering their post-secondary education, including courses and training programs of a technical and vocational nature.
The Education Bursary Program which is sponsored through the Township of Tiny is open to graduating students from the Township of Tiny attending École Le Caron, École secondaire catholique Nouvelle-Alliance, Georgian Bay District Secondary School, Saint Theresa’s Catholic Secondary School and Elmvale District Secondary School.
Approved bursaries are not based on scholastic standing but rather on the successful admission status to a post-secondary institution leading to a recognized degree, diploma or certificate. There are five bursaries available, one for each of the listed schools, at $1000 each.
Mayor Cornell stated, “Thank you to Deputy Mayor Walma for bringing this idea to Council. The Township is pleased to offer a post-secondary Education Bursary Program as we appreciate the importance of pursuing higher education and the financial challenges it can bring.”
The deadline for submissions to the 2017 Education Bursary Program is the last Friday in April 2017. Completed applications will be accepted by mail or in person at the Township of Tiny, 130 Balm Beach Road West, Tiny, ON, L0L 2J0 or by email at email@example.com.
