Last chance for Milton students to apply for post-secondary school scholarship
Published April 25, 2022 at 3:06 pm
There are only a few days left for first-year post-secondary students in Milton to submit their applications for the opportunity to receive a scholarship from the Town’s Chamber of Commerce.
The Milton Chamber of Commerce is a not-for-profit, membership-based, volunteer-driven organization that represents over 700 member businesses and individuals.
Since 1990, they have offered $1,000 scholarships to one student from each high school in Milton including E.C. Drury for the Deaf who will be entering their first year of post-secondary education.
A scholarship is also given to one high school student registered in an Ontario Youth Apprenticeship Program and one for a child of a Chamber member.
The program is funded through the Scholarship Café at the Milton Farmers’ Market and through the Annual Sports Celebrity Dinner and Auction. Proceeds from these initiatives allow the Chamber to ensure an ongoing fund to help advance post-secondary education in the community.
