Are you a young person looking for money to continue your education?

If so, you probably won’t go far wrong if you apply for Interior Savings Credit Union’s Million Dollar Bursary fund.

The fund gives away 1,000 bursaries of $1,000 each annually.

With less than a month until the application deadline at the end of Februry, only about half of the available bursaries have been applied for.

“Last year, we awarded four bursaries to students from our Clearwater Branch,” said Corinne Johnston, Interior Saviings spokesperson. “So far this year, we have received three applications from the Clearwater area and we’d love to see even more local youth benefit from this program.”

To be eligible, students have until Feb. 28 to become an Interior Savings member and apply for the bursary.

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 2018 and August 2019.

Students can only be awarded this bursary once.

Kathy Conway, Interior Savings’ CEO, said “There’s still time for students to become an Interior Savings member to qualify for a $1000 bursary and for all the benefits membership offers, including our top-rated service, a share of our profits and a free account for young adults.”

Last year, the Credit Union saw the same lag in applications until just before the deadline.

“The number of applications more than doubled in the final two weeks,” said Conway, “and this past September we issued close to $900,000 in awards.”

With the deadline less than a month 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.
