Generous partners in Greater Sudbury offer bursaries for this year’s graduates

11 June 2021
The Collège Boréal Foundation is proud to announce that 25 bursaries totaling more than $17,200 have been distributed to graduates of Boréal’s Sudbury campus at its 25th annual awards ceremony. Thanks to the generosity of many key partners, these bursaries were presented at a virtual event held Wednesday evening, June 9th.
Since the founding of Collège Boréal in 1997, more than 12 million dollars have been distributed to students from communities across the province and even internationally. Just this year, we are awarding 1065 bursaries for a total of over $850,000.

The mission of the Boréal Foundation and the Development Office is to facilitate access to higher education by providing resources to ensure that every student experiences rich and rewarding post-secondary studies, and particularly by:

  • Ensuring that no student is denied high quality education due to lack of money;
  • Recognizing the academic achievements and personal accomplishments of students through awards of excellence in all sectors;
  • Providing the College with appropriate teaching materials;
  • Maximizing revenues by inspiring and fostering a culture of philanthropy.

This year, more than ever, our graduates need to celebrate. Despite a challenging year marked by the pandemic, they persevered and obtained their diploma. It’s because of our partners, donors and benefactors that we can continue to provide financial support to our students year after year and for that, we are extremely grateful. To their generosity, we owe the success of this celebration of our students’ achievements as well!

Because our community partners understand this, they step up to support the development of our society and our economy. For that, I thank them wholeheartedly.
