Northern, Child Welfare Political Action Committee partner on new bursary

January 27, 2022
Northern College has partnered with the Child Welfare Political Action Committee to create a new bursary for students who were formerly or currently are in foster care. The bursary will provide two students who have been in the foster care system with room, board, tuition coverage, and the necessary supplies to be successful in their studies. “To make it to college, so many things would have had to go right in a world that did not convince these children that they mattered,” said Northern President Dr Audrey J Penner. “It is our hope and intention to be there for them, welcome them and surround them with the support needed to further their education and career paths. Opportunity is the key to ending this cycle.” Sault Star (ON)
