The Inspire Bursary Program was introduced by Northern Savings in 2013 and aims to provide financial assistance to students making a difference in our communities. In June 2014, Northern Savings received 16 applications from qualified candidates in our Northwest regions. A selection committee reviewed the applications and assessed them on the following three criteria: community volunteerism, financial need, and inspirational essay. Northern Savings is pleased to announce the winners of the 2014 Inspire Bursaries: $1,500 Alden Chow, Prince Rupert $1, 000 David Tran, Prince Rupert $500 Alissa MacMullin, Queen Charlotte “Ensuring we have strong, vibrant communities in the future will eventually rest on the shoulders of our youth,” said Northern Savings’ President and CEO, Ken Doleman. “Those who take the time to volunteer in the community and who choose to enhance their contributions to our communities by advancing their education are to be commended, and we are pleased to assist with their educational goals.” Northern Savings extends their sincerest appreciation and best wishes to all applicants for taking time to apply.
