APPLICATION DEADLINE: APRIL 15

The purpose of the Fund, as set out in the trust document is, “to assist any beneficiary selected under the provisions of the Trust to further his or her educational goals, whether academic or vocational, provided that the bursary shall not be used as a sole means of support but rather as a supplement to existing funding to cover shortfalls in fees, books, maintenance and/or transportation which might otherwise cause the individual affected to terminate his or her studies prematurely.”

In accordance with the trust document, annual bursaries are awarded to individuals “who are over the age of 19 years, and have been permanent wards of the Superintendent of Family and Child Service in the Ministry of Social Services and Housing (or its successors), and who meet the criteria deemed appropriate by the Trustee.”

BURSARIES

Successful applicants are awarded annual bursaries ranging in value up to a maximum of approximately $3,300.00 (amount is indexed annually with the cost of living).
