North Island students Yana Hempler and Russell Murray have won $5,000 business scholarships from Black Press, Canada’s largest independent newspaper company and parent company of the North Island Gazette.
This scholarship is for students entering the University of Victoria’s Bachelor of Commerce Program, says Black Press president and owner David Black, and generally it means a $5,000 scholarship to a student from one of 37 areas in BC. Black Press publishes in 35 of these.
Hempler and Murray are among the incoming high school students who demonstrated excellence in both academics and leadership and received the first-ever Black Press Business Scholarships, says a press release.
Now, 37 more annual scholarships are available to high school, transferring students and continuing students entering the University of Victoria Faculty of Business next year, with the next deadline Feb. 28, 2009, says the release. Generally one is awarded to a student applicant from each school district.
Applications must include a UVic scholarship application, a personal essay, a reference letter and transcripts. One complete package should be sent by mail to Bachelor of Commerce Program, Black Press Scholarship, Faculty of Business, PO Box 1700 Stn CSC, Victoria, BC V8W 2Y2 or delivered in person.
