Grants are like leprechauns and I found a pot of gold...
Everyone knows someone getting a post secondary education...
The Africville Heritage Trust hands out up to 5 post secondary bursaries to Africville descendants every year! I say up to, because I'm pretty sure they never gave out 5 grants in a year! Not too many people know about the opportunity, and I'm sure there are at least 5 Africville descendants deserving of the grants. It's just that nobody knows! I'm just trying to make sure the grants reach the community as they should.
So here is the MAIN criteria for the grants, right from the Africville Museum website. The links at the bottom of this post will give you all the information you need, right on the Africville Museum website... Good luck...
The costs related to going to school go way deeper than the price of tuition. The sacrifices some students and parents make, you will never hear. But every single day the struggle is real for so many people. It's a few thousand dollars for everybody that receives one of these grants.
Everyone knows somebody in post secondary or going into a post secondary institution. And if you ever had to pay for any of all the moving parts associated with going to school, then you know already!
So lets share this information so we can make more people aware of the opportunity as soon as possible, because the deadline to apply is on March 31.
Here is a link for the bursary application, on the Africville Museum website, and here is a link to find out the COMPLETE details in regards to the student bursary through the Africville Museum.
