Building our community
Mid Island Co-op supports a broad range of organizations, with priority given to those projects or organizations that build long-term capacity in our community. And our responsibility goes beyond our local community – we believe we have a responsibility to do business in a way that is environmentally sound and that encourages equality beyond our borders.
Each year Mid Island Co-op is proud to provide 24 bursaries and scholarships to post-secondary students. In addition to these awards which are administered through local school districts and Vancouver Island University, three additional awards of $1,500 are administered directly by the Co-op’s Member Relations Committee.
The Committee will select the three recipients based on overall merit demonstrated through the written answers provided in the application package. To qualify for an award, an applicant must prove acceptance and/or or ongoing registration to attend an accredited post-secondary institution in the upcoming academic year.
Applications are open to students in any recognized credit program, including academic, business, trades, vocational or adult education. Applicants must be a Mid Island Co-op Member, or an immediate family member of a Mid Island Co-op member in good standing.
The application period for the 2020 Mid Island Co-op Education Awards is now open. Qualified candidates are encouraged to apply for one of the available $1,500 awards, following the application form at the bottom of this page.
Deadline for submissions is 5:00pm on June 19, 2020.
