Keith Cooper Scholarship Application DUE

June 22, 2018 all-day America/Winnipeg Timezone

In 2002 the Board and staff of Winnipeg Child and Family Services was pleased to announce the creation of the Keith Cooper Scholarship Fund for children in and from care who wish to continue their education beyond Grade 12. The fund acknowledges the late Keith Cooper, former Chief Executive Officer of Winnipeg Child and Family Services and educator, and his commitment to children in Agency care as well as his interest in their further education.

The scholarship program draws upon funds from the Gilroy/Acheson account with the Winnipeg Foundation, which has been designated for use by children in care. The Keith Cooper Scholarship Fund was formerly a scholarship program for Winnipeg Child and Family Services. It is now available to all four Child and Family Services Authorities. A review panel including members from each CFS Authority and a representative of VOICES: Manitoba’s Youth in Care Network will review all applications and award several scholarships, combined totaling $10,000.00, prior to the 2018-19 academic year. Scholarship recipients can reapply for the scholarship for an additional three years so that a student might complete a four-year university, technical or vocational program.

Applications should be dropped off, faxed, or emailed to Voices.  All information is on the application.  Good luck!
