Scholarship Program

Established in 2013, our scholarship fund extends financial assistance to local students enrolled in a post-secondary program. This program awards successful applicants a $1000 scholarship towards the cost of their education. To date, $32,000 in scholarships have been presented to local students.

“Our region has always embraced Heritage Fitness and supported our growth. The scholarship program is one way we give back to the community and invest in its future,” explains Heritage Community Fitness & Rehabilitation Centre founder, Kevin Price. “Our community boasts youth with incredible potential. We are always impressed with the responses we get from applicants to the program.”

Our scholarship program is open to students graduating from our community high schools: Almonte District High School, Carleton Place High School, and Notre Dame Catholic High School. A $1000 scholarship will be awarded to one student from each of the three schools. To be eligible for the scholarship, students must:

  • submit the scholarship application along with completed essay questions
  • graduate high school in the year of the scholarship application
  • be enrolled in a post-secondary education program in any area of study beginning in September of the application year

Students do not need to be a member of our fitness centre to apply. Applications are made available in the spring through the guidance department at each of the schools. Scholarship recipients will be announced at the school’s commencement ceremonies.
