Amanda’s Gift Bursary Program
2016 applications now available!
Amanda’s gift is a bursary program of the Nova Scotia Council for the Family. It was established to provide financial assistance to youth formerly in the care of the Minister of Community Services in the Province of Nova Scotia, who wish to pursue education/career development opportunities. The bursary funds will be used to assist with items such as: tuition, books, computer equipment, conference fees and adult education courses. The initial funding for this bursary program was from a generous gift of $500 from Amanda Sutherland, a former youth in care who worked very hard to complete her post-secondary education. This experience enspired who wanted help others like her to complete their education. To date the Nova Scotia Council for the Family has awarded over 165 bursaries totaling over $270,000 to qualified youth 16-28 years of age. Awards are a minimum of $250 and can go up to $1,500.
