We had 275 individuals register for the bursary this year with 118 completing the full application by June 30th. After much deliberation, and careful consideration, 69 applicants were chosen to receive a bursary award this year.
Our top recipient, Huynh My Linh D. (left) was one of the strongest applications we have ever received. Her community involvement, scholastic achievement and demonstrated need was recognized by the reviewers. Huynh My Linh receives our top award of $3,000. An equally impressive application came in a very close second from Silma M. (right) who is receiving $2,000. Six individuals tied for third spot, each receiving $1,500. Congratulations to Reauna V., Benjamin G., Zoe M., Jose N., Syeda Taliya R., and Lilly V. The remaining award winners each will receive $1,000.
We were delighted to have receive applications from members of 33 different credit unions, and award are going out to members from 28 of those credit unions. This is our highest participation rate yet. We extend our thanks to all the credit unions who promoted the CU Succeed Youth Bursary to their members.
A big thank you to the nine adjudicators who worked through 118 completed CU Succeed Youth Bursary applications. Congratulations to all the bursary recipients. We wish everyone who applied a successful school year ahead.
