Bursary stories


Hamilton Community Foundation believes that everyone should have access to educational opportunities. Bursary and scholarship funds created by our generous donors provide assistance and encouragement to students who are challenged by the costs of higher learning. The impact of these funds is hard to overestimate:  because of them, hundreds of students have received support without which they may never have been able to complete their education. We invite you to read some of the stories of the recipients, told in their own words.  If you have a story to share, we’d love to hear from you; please contact Grace Diffey. If you are a student seeking financial support, please visit our Scholarships and Bursaries page to learn more about the opportunities available.
