Local students encouraged to apply for post-secondary funding from The Kinette Club of Medicine Hat.

The Kinette Club of Medicine Hat is proud to offer a chance for local students, studying at the post-secondary level, to apply for a Kin Canada Bursary.

Students who are, or will be, attending a recognized post-secondary institution during the 2012-2013 school year, are encouraged to apply for the $1,000 bursary. Applications must be post marked Feb. 1, 2012, and can be downloaded at

Bursaries are awarded to students based on financial need, community and school involvement, and knowledge of Kin Canada. Successful applicants will be notified by June 2012.

Kin Canada Bursaries is a program of the Hal Rogers Endowment Fund. Hal Rogers was the founder of Kinsmen in 1920 and he was a passionate advocator in the value of educating Canada’s youth.

Since Kin Canada Bursaries was established in 1994, more than half a million dollars in bursaries have been awarded to students pursuing their post-secondary education. The bursaries are supported each year by the fundraising efforts of Kinsmen, Kinette and Kin Clubs across the country.

Kin Canada is the Association of Kinsmen, Kinette and Kin clubs. In hundreds of communities across Canada, more than 7,000 dedicated volunteers make up this dynamic, all-Canadian service organization. Through their promotion of service, fellowship, positive values and national pride, Kin members work tirelessly to make their communities and country a better place to live.
