Scholarship

 Georgina Cares Fund Student Scholarship – 2017

Deadline is Monday, May 1st, 2017!

The goal of our organization is to “help kids be kids”!  We are not alone; there are hundreds of people in our community who commit their time to give back and make Georgina a better place to live.  Many of them are students…ones who go above and beyond their “40 hours” to help others in our community.  

As these students finish their last year of school, we want to acknowledge their contribution of volunteering within the Town of Georgina.  Our 2017 Student Scholarship will recognize up to three graduating high school students and reward them for helping others.   

  

To qualify, you must:

  • be graduating high school in June 2017

  • be a resident of the Town of Georgina

  • have given back to the community by volunteering with children in some capacity.

.

Steps to Apply

1.  Download a copy of the Scholarship Application Form 2017 or pick up an application from the Principal’s office at any elementary school in the Town of Georgina.

2.  Fill out the form completely.  Incomplete applications will not be accepted.

3.  Write an essay (500-1000 words) identifying how you have given back to our community  during your high school years.  Give specific examples and include why you think it is important to volunteer.

4.  Ask for a letter of recommendation from someone who knows how much you have contributed to our community.  This could be a teacher, principal, coach, elder or community leader.  It CANNOT be from family or friends.
