$1.5-million donation to Mohawk College supports bursaries

March 1, 2012

The Ron Joyce Foundation announced Tuesday a $1.5-million gift in support of financial need bursaries for Mohawk College students -- the largest bursary donation in the college's history. Capped off with an additional $500,000 from a provincial matching program, the funding will allow Mohawk to provide nearly 20 full-tuition bursaries annually. The Ron Joyce Access Bursary is a key element of the college's Access Project, an initiative launched in collaboration with regional public, private and non-profit sector partners that aims to increase secondary school graduation and PSE participation rates among young people who currently do not see university, college, or apprenticeship in their future.
