Have you heard about the Carleton graduate who is putting up $1,000 of his own cash as a scholarship for current students? I heard about this on the radio this morning and thought it was a really good idea. It really goes to show how much Carletonians love their school and want to make it better.
To win the cash, you have to write an essay where you describe what you would do to improve the student experience at Carleton. It’s a pretty simple concept and the possibilities are endless! Are you going to give it a try? To read more about the scholarship you can go here. The deadline is November 10th, 2011.
Water Environment Association of Ontario (WEAO) will be running its Scholarship Program for 2011. The purpose of the scholarship is to promote student awareness of, and recognize outstanding students in, the water quality field in Ontario.
