Do you know a future college or university student interested in public service or non-profit management?

The Chatham-Kent Nonprofit Network invites applicants for the Josie Matteis Doto Bursary for Non-profit Management.

Inspired by Matteis’s volunteer work with the local United Way, the bursary was established to honour the memory of the Chatham-Kent native who passed away in 2015. Matteis is remembered as someone who was selflessly dedicated to helping those in need in our community.

Her family members and the Chatham-Kent Nonprofit Network are proud to offer this bursary for nonprofit management to someone who has a similar passion and commitment to helping to build a stronger and better community for us all to live, work, and play in.

This bursary will be awarded to a deserving student entering a program at a College or University in the field of Community Studies, Liberal Arts, Arts and Humanities, Social Science, Leadership and Social Change, Social Work or Behavioural and Social Sciences. Eligible students will be Canadian Citizens or permanent residents of Canada (landed immigrant or a protected person).

This $1,000 award for the 2018/2019 academic year will be granted to one recipient. Applications will be accepted until April 1 at 5 p.m. The successful candidate will be notified in writing by April 26.
