The Friends of the Tay Watershed, in partnership with Little Stream Bakery, are looking for students who would like $1,000 to help with their college or university expenses. This year two bursaries will be awarded to students who have a special interest in the environment. The award of these bursaries is not based on marks but on a demonstrated interest in the environment and water sustainability.
These bursaries are open to Tay Watershed high school students graduating in 2022-23, as well as former Tay Watershed students who are continuing their post-secondary education. Students who chose a gap year after graduating are also eligible.
Students can find a fillable application form and instructions re other required documents on the Friends website attaywatershed.ca/new.php#WG23
Entry criteria and forms are also available from the student’s Guidance Counsellor. Along with the application form, students are asked to write an essay of about 500 words telling the Friends why they are passionate about sustainability, the environment and water; as well as providing a letter of recommendation from a faculty teacher, and a person who is not a family member.
