Citizenship bursaries

Since 2008, the Foundation has been giving Citizenship Bursaries to graduating students of the Sir Wilfrid Laurier School Board. The graduate nominated for this bursary works as volunteer within the community (family, school, neighbourhood, city, church, charitable or non-profit organization, etc.) Through his/her commitment, individual or collective, the nominee contributes to the well-being and betterment of society.

We are proud to recognize these students who have been role models for their peers.
