What is the G.H.S. Bursary Fund?
The G.H.S. Bursary Fund is a charitable organization set up to help G.H.S. graduates pursue their post-secondary education.
The cost of college and university tuition and living expenses continues to rise. Through contributions from local businesses, service clubs, and generous donors, the GHS Bursary Fund is able to provide financial support to all applicants in need through their first year of post-secondary education.
The GHS Bursary Fund is a non-profit registered charity. The fund is administered by a volunteer board of teachers and community members and therefore has no administrative fees. All donors are acknowledged on the commencement program in June each year and are issued an official tax receipt.
The recipients of the Bursary Fund are chosen based on financial need demonstrated in October of their first year of their post-secondary schooling. The bursary awards are presented to the recipients at the beginning of December of that year. The amount of the bursary award depends on the amount of donations received, the need presented by the student, and by the number of applicants to the fund. Recipients are chosen by the members of the bursary fund committee.
