For the past 10 years, Grade 12 students in Pickering and Ajax, and adult students in foreign countries, have been awarded scholarships and bursaries by St. Paul on-the-Hill, Pickering, to help pay for their education.
Scholarships have been given to 31 students from the Ajax and Pickering area, and 10 international students, from Tanzania, Guyana, Uganda, Guatemala, Kenya, South Sudan, Ethiopia, Egypt and Cambodia, have received bursaries.
Recipients of the 2017 Youth Achievement Scholarship are Tajae Gustavus, Nathanael Masson and Sarah Power. The 2017 Arcelia Hunte Memorial International Bursary was awarded to three women from the Mother’s Union Sewing Centre of the Diocese of Tarime, Tanzania – Happiness Daniel, Ester Paulo and Suzana Samwel.
High school students who are residents of Ajax or Pickering and plan to attend university or college in September 2018, are eligible for the scholarship. The next set of scholarship applications are due by May 18, 2018 and forms will be available on-line at www.stpaulsonthehill.com, at the church or at school guidance offices in Ajax or Pickering beginning in January.
St. Paul’s is proud to continually encourage and support the young people of its community and adults studying to make a difference in their families and communities in the world at large.
