Two students will each receive $1,000 for their first year of studies thanks to Lethbridge County.
Lethbridge County is now accepting applications for its annual Bursary Program. The program provides financial assistance to aspiring post-secondary students residing within the County.
Applications are open to any student or adult who is a current resident of Lethbridge County and going into their first year of post-secondary studies.
"It is our hope that this bursary can assist County students in their post-secondary journey," says Reeve Tory Campbell.
The applicant is required to have attended school within the County's municipal borders, which includes schools in Lethbridge, Picture Butte, Coaldale, Coalhurst, and Nobleford. Consideration will be given to applicants based on academic standing and good citizenship demonstrated through community participation.
Applicants do not have to be a current high school student but must be enrolled in their first year at a post-secondary institute.
The application deadline is June 1, 2022. The awards will be disbursed by August 31, 2022, with proof of enrollment.
