News from Community Services Bursaries!

The Community Service Bursary will be expanded in 2017-18. Recently, the Province’s Youth Future Council recommended changes to the program which have been adopted by the Province. Specifically, the following changes will be made:

· Grade ten students will now be able to accumulate hours (including hours volunteered in the summer before they begin grade 10)

· The maximum amount a student can get the bursary for will be increased to 150 hours (for a total of $750)

The Student Financial Services office will still require each student to fill out a Community Service Bursary Student/Organization Service Agreement but will no longer require this form to be submitted prior to the student accumulating hours.
