The Royal Canadian Legion, Port Coquitlam Branch 133 is offering eight bursaries worth $2,000 each to Tri-City high school students.
Four of the bursaries will be awarded through the Legion Poppy Fund to qualified applicants who are children or grandchildren of ex-service personnel and the remaining four will be awarded through the Branch 133 education fund.
Applicants for these bursaries don't need to have any military or Legion affiliation because awards are based on financial need and good grades. Total family income cannot exceed $60,000 a year.
Applications are available through high school counsellors or from the Legion office at 604-492-8911, or from the chair of the PoCo branch's education committee, Andrew Carroll, at 604-464-4868.
