Dale Morrow Bursary

To commemorate the legacy of long time Board Member and Chair, Dale Morrow, a tireless supporter of Futureworx and an advocate for life long learning.

In 2015, the Futureworx Society Board of Directors made the decision to move forward with the creation of a bursary fund to commemorate the legacy of our long-time Board Member and Chair, Dale Morrow. Dale was a tireless supporter of the work undertaken by the Society and was a strong advocate for life-long learning. The bursary fund is used to provide financial assistance to clients of the Society needing support to pursue studies, courses, seminars, workshops and diploma/degree programs to improve their overall suite of skills required for employment.

The bursary committee administers the bursary fund and reviews applications annually. The value of the bursaries awarded depends on the funds available in any given year and the number of applicants that qualify.

If you require further information please contact our Head Office at 902-843-4290

December 3rd is declared by the United Nations as the International Day of Persons with Disabilities. This day is meant to remind us of our responsibility as a society to promote the rights and well being of persons living with disabilities. In honour of this day, staff of our Truro Campus and Nova Scotia Works Centre donated their Casual Day funds to the Autism NS Truro Chapter to support their vision of an accessible and equitable community. Donations received go directly to programs Autism NS provides to members of our community. The staff of our Elmsdale Nova Scotia Works Centre were in the foyer of the Lloyd E. Matheson Centre to raise awareness of corporate social responsibility and consumer buying power in changing attitudes of hiring persons living with disabilities.
