Schools foundation seeking applicants for awards

Attending a post-secondary institution is a big financial commitment and can be cost prohibitive for some, but the Nanaimo-Ladysmith Schools Foundation aims to help.

Applications are now open for more than 400 awards, bursaries and scholarships with a total value of about $300,000 that the foundation is giving to students of all interests, abilities and academic levels.

“There are opportunities for students who are active in the community, excel in sports, have a specific study are they are pursuing or who have financial need,” said Erin van Steen, foundation executive director, in a press release.

The deadline to apply is Feb. 15 and applications and more information can be found at under the “programs” tab.

To donate to the foundation, please call van Steen at 250-753-4074.
