Time is running out to get some free money.
The Coquitlam Foundation is reminding eligible Coquitlam students, residents and organizations that the deadline for applications for grants, bursaries and scholarships is Thursday, Feb. 24.
The foundation intends to distribute about $50,000 this spring in the form of bursaries and scholarships to students and grants to organizations.
The foundation is in an especially strong position this year to support grant applications relating to the fostering of the arts. Other areas of interest include education and literacy, health and wellness, heritage and history, and conservation.
