The Walker Wood Foundation bursaries are open to both current 2nd and 3rd year students. Students must be Canadian citizens and in good standing with the School. This is a cash award to 3rd year students. If awarded to a 2nd year student, the funds go toward their 3rd year tuition, unless it is covered by another award; in this case the prize will be awarded in cash at the beginning of the next school year.
The criteria upon which the Walker Wood Foundation bursaries are awarded include:
- Canadian citizenship;
- good standing with the School;
- demonstrated leadership qualities;
- high academic standing; and
- financial need.
Should a bursary be awarded to a 2nd year student, it maybe renewable for that student’s 3rd year as long as they remain in good standing and continue to meet the criteria as laid out above. The final determination as to whether the student continues to meet these criteria will be made by the School.
Applications will be reviewed by senior faculty and staff who will compile a short list of candidates for each award. In order to be considered for renewal, the award winner must reapply. The final decision will be made by a panel of senior faculty, staff, invited guest artists, and a member of our Board of Directors.
The winners of the 2020 Walker Wood Foundation Bursaries are Lyla-Jean Dezall, Christina Litt Belch, and Jianna Neufeld– read the full announcement here.
