Bursary Winners 2016
The Knights of Columbus in Ontario recognizes the importance of Post-Secondary School education so the Ontario State Chaplains Bursary program was established to award to 5 successful applicants each year a Bursary of $1,000.00 each. This program provides a bursary to assist Knights and members of their families entering the first year of a post-secondary education. Candidates who are eligible for an Ontario Knights of Columbus Bursary are:
- A member of the Knights of Columbus of Ontario in good standing.
- The wife, son or daughter of a member in good standing.
- The wife, son or daughter of a deceased member in good standing at the time of his death.
- A grandchild who is the legal ward of a member in good standing.
Applications must be submitted by May 15 of the current year. Schools and individuals may reproduce the application form or download it through our website Although the applicant’s marks are important and taken into consideration, it is important to note that in many cases where an applicant is successful, it is based on their need. The bursary recipients will be announced by the end of June of the current year. Application form - English / français
One of the more prominent comments we receive each year is that members were not aware that the bursaries were available. Through this website we hope to publicize more widely that the Knights of Columbus are interested in assisting those entering Post-Secondary Education.
Please assist us with the dissemination of this information so that as many people as possible can take advantage of this opportunity.
NOTE: There are many more scholarships and bursaries available through Supreme Knights of Columbus as well. You can check these out at www.kofc.org/un/en/scholarships .
