Thousands of dollars worth of bursaries for Northern campuses!

4 June 2021
As part of its 25th annual awards, the Collège Boréal Foundation is proud to announce that 66 bursaries totaling more than $29,000 have been distributed to graduates of our campuses in Hearst, Kapuskasing, Timmins and West Nipissing. Thanks to the generosity of many important partners, Collège Boréal presented these awards at various events held virtually from May 31 to June 7, 2021.
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.
On behalf of all of our staff at the Kapuskasing campus, I wish to congratulate our graduates for their perseverance and for overcoming the challenges of the past year with firm resolve. Thank you for giving us your confidence and for deciding to pursue your education in our institution… in your institution. We wish you success in all your future endeavours. Our partners have always been firmly committed to the success of many initiatives on the Kapuskasing campus and I am deeply grateful for their generosity towards our students. On behalf of the entire Boréal team, I thank you all.
If our students are able to celebrate their successes tonight, it is thanks to your generous donations and your commitment to Collège Boréal. On behalf of all of our students and staff, please be assured that your contributions are greatly appreciated. We thank you for your continued confidence in our graduates.
Collège Boréal’s Nipissing campus is fortunate to have excellent partners who support our graduates, particularly in these times of uncertainty due to the pandemic. We thank you wholeheartedly for your generosity and confidence towards our graduates year after year. Congratulations to all of our award recipients for their success and excellence. You have made us proud.

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 is because of our partners that we are able to continue to provide financial support to our students year after year and for that, we are extremely grateful. We owe to our partners the success of this celebration of our students’ achievements!
