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
