According to its website, the Coquitlam Foundation's community grants are earmarked for non-profits whose goals are to improve the lives of local residents.

The application form suggests that up to $3,500 is available for successful candidate and the foundation adds the grants are "more broadly set up to address a cause or concern in the community."

As for scholarships and bursaries, there are 17 listed — some ranging from $1,000 to $1,500 each — set for current or prospective post-secondary students.

If successful, the recipients would put the money towards tuition, a particular field of study or for involvement in a sport.

Interested applicants are encouraged to fill and submit the required forms before 4 p.m. on Feb. 15.

More information is available on the Coquitlam Foundation's website.
