Description:The Cochrane Rotary Club is proud to be involved with an annual Bursary Program with the three High Schools in Cochrane. Cochrane High School, Bow Valley High School and St. Timothy High School have collectively received over $50,000 since the inception of this program in 1997. Currently, each school receives $1200.00 each year which is divided into two $600.00 awards.
Originally referred to as the “Spark and Passion” award, bursaries are funds (grants) based on clearly demonstrated financial need and/or satisfactory academic achievement. This differs from a scholarship which is typically awarded only on the basis of academic excellence.
The decisions on those students eligible for bursaries are made by each school with the Rotary Club providing limited consultation to insure students in both the academic and trade disciplines are considered.
