PEACE RIVER AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY

Sports or Educational Bursary

 

In recognition of the difficulty young Albertans face as they strive to achieve their athletic or educational goals while living in the rural areas of the Alberta Peace Country.   Peace River Agricultural Society has developed a Bursary Program for these young people, up to the age of 25, for any agricultural based educational course, or athletic goals at a provincial or higher level.   This money must be used to help cover costs of registration and books, or travel and registration costs in a sports event. Three Bursaries of $500 may be awarded yearly by the Peace River Ag Society Board.  

    First deadline is March 30, second is July 30, and third is November 30.    

Applications are accepted in letter format and must be accompanied by proof of registration/costs paid.  Please keep letter to less than one page. If unsuccessful, you may resubmit your application once more in time for the next deadline.  You may apply for as many bursaries as you want for different courses/schooling, but priority will be given to new persons who haven’t received this bursary in the past.

  • An outline of yourself as someone growing up in the Alberta Peace Country

  • An outline of educational course/schooling you are taking or outline of sport  event you have attended
