With the aim of keeping all of our programs as accessible as possible, Rivers to Ridges has created the Strong Roots Bursary Fund available for families in need. It is with the support of many that we are able to have and keep this funding available. Unfortunately, we can not guarantee funding for all applicants.
If you feel your child would benefit from taking part in our programs, and that attendance would put a financial hardship on your family, please consider applying to our Fund. Bursaries are limited and reserved for those most in need, and decisions are made by Rivers to Ridges team.
What do I need to know?
* Bursary applications are only assessed for registered participants. Please register for your chosen program, pay the deposit, and enroll in a payment plan prior to applying for a bursary.* We try our very best to work with each family to make the program accessible; in the rare case that we are not able to meet your financial need, we will provide a full refund.* Please apply at least two (2) weeks before a program start date. Our team may not have enough time to process applications received afterwards.* All sections of the applications must be complete.* The staff team reserves the right to request further information from the applicants as necessary.* Each application will be assessed on an individual basis.* If more than one family has applied for the Bursary Fund, decisions will be based on stronger evidence of financial need. * If there is evidence of equal need, funds will be divided appropriately.* The Bursary Fund may award up to 70% of a child’s program costs.
