The Campbell River Rotary Club Foundation (noon club) has announced that it will have $8,000 in bursary funds this year to aid Campbell River students to continue their education.

These funds are budgeted from the clubs income from bingo games and will be limited to $1,000 per student.

It is possible that additional funds may be granted to students from the regular investment income from the foundation’s capital fund.

Eight bursaries of $1,000 each will be awarded. Bursary recipients are selected on the basis of scholarship combined with need. A good quality student who has been unable to qualify for scholarships from other sources may be eligible.
