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, $26,000 in scholarships have been presented to local students.
“There are many hardworking youth in our community with bright futures,” observes Heritage Community Fitness & Rehabilitation Centre founder, Kevin Price. “We want to help alleviate some of the financial burden associated with post-secondary education so students have the opportunity to pursue their interests and goals.”
Our scholarship program is open to students graduating from our community high schools: Almonte District High School, Carleton Place High School, Notre Dame Catholic High School, and TR Leger School of Adult, Alternative and Continuing Education (Carleton Place campus). A $1000 scholarship will be awarded to one student from each of the four 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.
The deadline for applications for our 2024 scholarship program will be announced in April.
Congratulations to our 2023 recipients! Each of these graduating students has earned $1000 toward the costs of their post-secondary studies:
Jenna Acheson of Almonte District High School
Emmerson Gromley of Carleton Place High School
Jaylon Melcher of Notre Dame Catholic High School
Thank you to everyone who applied to our annual scholarship program. We wish all graduating students much success in their studies!
