Educational Bursaries

Each year BPW Regina sponsors two Educational Bursaries: one locally and one internationally. The internationally bursary is managed through CHES (Canadian Harambee Education Society) and is awarded to a girl to ensure her ability to complete high school. The local bursary is designed to encourage and assist women in their continuation of post-secondary education. The value of the local education award is a total of $750.00 which is awarded in equal amounts in December and February. (Following are the details for applying for the local education award).
