Whitewater Ontario Instructional Bursary

Whitewater Ontario is pleased to support individuals seeking to further their skills and contribute to their paddling community through an annual bursary.

The bursary amounts to $1000 and will be awarded to an individual or individuals who demonstrate interest in a higher level course such as whitewater rescue, coaching, instruction or leadership, among others. Applications for lower level courses will be considered but priority will go to courses that will allow the individual to give back in the most significant way to their club or paddling community. Priority will also be given to paddlers who support WO’s mandate, including gender equality, accessibility, and LGBTQ inclusion.

To be considered for the bursary applicants will complete the application form and submit it along with any supporting documentation to [email protected] by April 30 to be considered for the summer or fall season. Applications received after this date will be considered if there are funds remaining in the bursary at the time of receipt, or will be considered for the following season if applicable.

Bursary recipients will be announced to the public and notified by email/phone by May 15, 2020

Bursary funds will be distributed after the course has been fully completed (proof required) and no later than September 1, with the exception of any courses running after this date.
