It’s the time of year when senior students are looking to continuing their education and and the Alberta-North West Territories (NWT) Ladies Auxiliary of the Royal Canadian Legion is offering students a number of $500 bursaries.

The bursaries are intended for Alberta and NWT students entering their first term of studies in a certificate/diploma or degree program at a university, school of technology or art and nursing program, or at any recognized college in Alberta or the NWT.

The bursaries are also intended to assist children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews and great-nieces and great-nephews of ex-service personnel, along with children and grandchildren of current serving personnel and RCMP members, military reserves and paid or volunteer firefighters who have served a minimum of one year.

Children and grandchildren of auxiliary and branch members are also encouraged to apply, however mature students over 20 years or age will not qualify.

Also, to receive a bursary, students applying must be graduates of Grade 12 in 2009 or 2010.
