Health and social services bursary closing soon!

School can be expensive, but help may be available for students living in the Montérégie-East region who are pursuing the health and social services field. With applications closing on May 12, there’s no time to delay!

Offered by McGill University, and administered in the Estrie and Montérégie-East by Townshippers’ Association, the Health and Social Services Community Leadership Bursary Program offers bursaries to full-time students from selected Quebec regions with English and French language skills who are pursuing full-time studies in the area of health and social services in a government-recognized educational institution. The bursary program also focuses on students who have demonstrated a commitment to, and involvement in, their community.

The program is aimed at addressing the need for health professionals with English and French language skills.

The only commitment expected in return for the bursaries is that graduates pledge to serve their communities by working in the region for a year’s internship after completing their studies. Support is available through Townshippers’.

Two different categories of bursaries are offered:

Category 1 is for eligible students who are studying at an institution located outside their home region. Bursary amounts are awarded based on students’ level of study with up to $10,000 at the university level and $5,000 for cégep/college and secondary school vocational training. 

Category 2 is for eligible students who are studying at an institution located within their home region. Up to $5,000 is awarded at the university level and $2,500 for cégep/college and secondary school vocational training.

Applications close May 12, 2017, at 5:00pm. Forms, information, and support can be obtained by contacting Michelle Lepitre, Townshippers’ Health and Social Services Special Projects Coordinator, at [email protected] or call 819-566-2182 (toll-free 1-877-566-2182). Additional information can be found on Townshippers’ career and employment website, www.Topportunity.ca/student.

Photo Caption: Last year, Université du Québec à Trois-Rivières’s nursing student Emily MacGregor was the recipient of a $10,000 health and social services bursary offered by McGill University, and administered by Townshippers’ Association. More than 25 bursaries totalling about $160,000 have been awarded in the Townships to health and social services students. Students, like Emily, who are studying outside their home region stand to gain from the higher end of the program.
