Awards help students achieve their goals
When second year Coast Mountain College Nursing student, Kennedy Rutledge learned she had received the Alma VanDusen award from the Vancouver Foundation, she was thrilled.
"The bursary has enabled me to continue to thrive and ease my financial stress," says Rutledge. She plans to put the funds toward the purchase of a new stethoscope and textbooks to support her next semester of classes.
The Alma VanDusen award provides bursaries that assist full-time, female students in financial need who have identified academic or vocational education goals and demonstrated their ability to reach them.
"I'm really grateful for this award," Rutledge says, and encourages other students to explore what awards and bursaries are available through the CMTN Foundation and Coast Mountain College.
