KELOWNA: – Interior Savings makes urgent call to action for students to claim their share of the Million Dollar Bursary fund before Feb. 1.
For the third year in a row, Interior Savings is proudly continuing its commitment to award up to $1 million in bursaries annually. That’s one thousand $1,000 bursaries in 2016!
The goal of the Million Dollar Bursary program is to support young people in realizing their full potential. And with over $500,000 still available for students to access, Interior Savings wants to ensure this funding doesn’t go untapped.
The program is a benefit offered to Interior Savings’ members.
According to Kathy Conway, Interior Savings’ CEO, “There’s still time for students to become an Interior Savings member to qualify for a $1,000 bursary and for all the benefits membership offers, including our top-rated service and easy to use mobile app.”
To be eligible for a bursary this year, students have until Feb. 1 to become an Interior Savings member. With that deadline just over a week away, Interior Savings is making one final push to get the word out to local students who may need a little help with their tuition.
The bursary program is intended for students between the ages of 17 and 24, who are entering or returning to full-time study towards a degree, diploma or trade certification program at a designated post-secondary institution, with classes starting between September 2016 and August 2017. The deadline for members to submit a bursary application is May 1.
In the past two years, all those who applied and met eligibility criteria received a $1,000 bursary. That’s great news for students, and very bankable odds!
