Drug Strategy Committee offers pair of bursaries

Bursaries of $500 each

The Community Drug Strategy Committee is once again offering two bursaries of $500 each for two graduating students attending schools in the Comox Valley to be used for their post-secondary education.

The Smart Choices Bursary is for a graduating student who has remained substance free throughout high school. The Courage to Come Back Bursary is for a student who has used substances but then had the courage to stop using and become substance free.

To apply for either bursary, each student will be required to fill out and submit an application form including providing two references, as well as to complete a brief, one-page essay outlining their decisions to stay drug and alcohol free or to become drug and alcohol free.  The deadline for applications this year is Friday, April 1.

Application forms can be obtained from the high schools or through the CDSC directly at drugstrategy@hotmail.com (attention: Karen).  FMI, contact Karen at the same e-mail address or by phone at 250-339-3603.
