Bursary awarded to Clearview’s Justin Rowbotham
Justin Rowbotham is the recipient of the County of Simcoe Student Bursary for Clearview Township.
A Collingwood Collegiate Institute grad, Rowbotham is currently enrolled in the computer science program at Western University.
The 2023 bursary program supports 21 students, with each student receiving a $3,000 bursary towards their post-secondary studies ($2,000 from the County and $1,000 from the member municipality).
“The county is pleased to once again partner with our lower-tier municipalities and Georgian College to offer Simcoe County students financial support,” said Warden Basil Clarke. “County council is focused on building up our communities and supporting our residents, including helping to grow our future labour force. On behalf of county council, I want to congratulate each of this year’s winners and wish them the best of luck in their studies.”
The county received a record number of applications, which were anonymized and independently reviewed by members of the bursary committee.
Five non area specific bursaries were fully funded by the County.
The application process for the Student Bursary program typically opens in the spring. The program is promoted through various channels. Students looking for financial support in 2024 are advised to visit simcoe.ca/ studentbursary.
