The Foundation also provides bursaries to students who hold above-average grades and demonstrate financial need.
“We received applications from about one hundred brilliant students this year, from across the country. The Selection Committee had a difficult task at hand, but ultimately decided to award ten individuals based on their combined academic excellence and community involvement,” remarks Richard Lim, President of the Education Foundation of CPAC. “EF has given out over 200 monetary awards in the past fourteen years with a value of $235,000. We would like to thank all of our sponsors and donors for their generous and continued support that has allowed us to fulfill our commitment in this regard. We would especially like to thank CPA Ontario, the diamond sponsor of the 2014 CPAC Scholarship Award Ceremony,” continued President Lim.
Tianbao Travel, Investors Group, CPA Ontario, and Queen Financial Group are all sponsors of $1,000 scholarships and awards to high school and post-secondary students. The highest honour is the $3,000 CPAC-TD Meloche Monnex Prestigious Scholarship, award to the top applicant in the post-secondary student category.
