Close to 100 College of the Rockies students received news in November that they are the beneficiaries of Columbia Basin Trust bursaries. The bursaries range from $250-$1,500 and are awarded to full-time students who have lived in the Basin for at least three years and have demonstrated financial need. Many are active volunteers in their communities.
“We’re proud to partner with local colleges to deliver this funding to students in our region,” said Aimee Ambrosone, Director of Delivery of Benefits at Columbia Basin Trust. “Our bursary program supports students in continuing their studies right here at home.”
College of the Rockies has campuses in several Basin communities: Cranbrook, Creston, Fernie, Golden, Invermere and Kimberley.
