Bursary Application Form

The Otesha Project is committed to making its bike tours accessible to all. Therefore we offer bursaries based on financial need to assist tour members who are unable to raise their full project contribution. This money is drawn from funds raised through our network of generous donors and partners.

The application form below cannot be saved and returned to, so set aside 15 minutes to complete it all in one go!

    Apply to a bursary

    You may apply to any or all of the Andrew Wolf Memorial Bursary or the Cliff Pilkey Changemaker Bursary. However, you will likely only receive funds from one of the bursaries.

    Andrew Wolf Memorial Bursary

    After Andrew Wolf's tragic passing during the 2010 Highlands and Islands Tour, his family initiated a bursary in his name in order to make Otesha programs more accessible. Each year the Awarding Committee selects one or more applicants who face economic hardship and reduces that person's fundraising target by up to 80%. See the Bursaries webpage at www.otesha.ca for more information.

    Cliff Pilkey Changemaker Bursary

    Cliff Pilkey was a union leader with Unifor who worked for social justice causes. To pay tribute to this dedicated union leader, and the just world that he believed in, Unifor has made funding from their Social Justice Fund available to increase the accessibility of tours for changemakers who face economic barriers. This bursary is available to multiple applicants and may be used to reduce fundraising targets by up to 80%. See the Bursaries webpage at www.otesha.ca for more information.
