THE PAS KINSMEN BURSARY
Two $1500 bursaries awarded to two MBCI students entering a post-secondary education program beginning this September (may be deferred 1 year). The student must be a resident of The Pas area, have a 70+ average, and must be involved in one or more community activities that demonstrate good citizenship, participation, and leadership. This may be demonstrated through involvement in activities such as 4H clubs, sports, church groups, Boy Scouts, Girl Guides, coaching, instructing, volunteering, or donating time to charity. In a few brief paragraphs, explain what “good citizenship” means to you in relationship to the Kinsmen Motto: “Serving the community’s greatest needs.”
Submit your essay and application form to the MBCI guidance councillors.
KIN CANADA BURSARIES
Kin Canada Bursaries is a program of the Hal Rogers Endowment Fund, supported by Kinsmen, Kinette and Kin clubs, and public donations, across the country. Each year, $1,000 bursaries are awarded to successful Canadian applicants who are pursuing post-secondary education at a recognized university, community college, technical institute and other schools for advanced education.
Of the bursaries awarded, there are four named bursaries: The “Diana Lyn McKenna Memorial Bursary” to a student from Ontario in the Health/Sciences field, the Bob Pittman Bursary for a Business student, the Kevin Denbok Bursary for Music students and the Winnipeg Kinsmen Jackpot Bingo Bursary awarded to a District 2 student.
The Pas Kinsmen annually contribute to this fund and nominate 1 person each year from the applications we receive. We are proud that the last 3 years have seen our candidate selected.
