Applications must be post marked Feb. 1, 2016. More information on making your application successful can be found at this link: Kin Canada Bursary

Bursaries are awarded to students based on financial need, community and school involvement, and knowledge of Kin Canada. Successful applicants will be notified by June 2012. Kin Canada established the Kin Canada Bursaries, a program of the Hal Rogers Endowment Fund, in memory of Hal Rogers, the Association's founder. Rogers passed away in September 1994 at the age of 95. Its purpose is to promote, encourage and sponsor educational programs and activities.

Throughout his life, Hal Rogers believed in the value of education. In his own words, "providing and promoting the finest and most effective education possible for our young people" was a noble endeavor.

Since the Bursaries were established in 1994, more than half a million dollars have been awarded to students pursuing their post-secondary education. The bursaries are supported each year by the fundraising efforts of Kinsmen, Kinette and Kin Clubs across the country.

Kin Canada is the Association of Kinsmen, Kinette and Kin clubs. In hundreds of communities across Canada, more than 7,000 dedicated volunteers make up this dynamic, all-Canadian service organization. Through their promotion of service, fellowship, positive values and national pride, Kin members work tirelessly to make their communities and country a better place to live.
