The Coast Capital Savings, knows that paying for an education can be challenging. It can be especially challenging for youth who’ve faced more than their share of personal hurdles. That’s why they created the Youth Get It Education Awards. This year they are offering two awards, Standing Tall Award and the Beth Hutchinson Award.
For 2016, we’re offering at total of 60 Education Awards, as follows:
|Standing Tall Award
59 Awards of $2500 Available
|Our Standing Tall Awards support youth who have faced adversity and not only risen up against the odds, but are demonstrating a commitment to continue their education. This award is open to students who have faced challenges like poverty, health issues, family issues, personal loss, or lack of supports (for example, youth who are or who have been in government care).|
|Beth Hutchinson Award
One $5000 Award Available
|One individual will be selected to receive the Beth Hutchinson Award. This award recognizes the young person in Surrey who best exemplified a commitment to continuing their education in the face of considerable health challenges.
Beth was an inspirational Standing Tall winner in 2012, and we’re honouring her memory by making the Beth Hutchinson Award available to a student from her home community of Surrey, BC.
To be eligible to receive an award, students must not have previously received an Education Award from us, and be:
