Shuswap Community Foundation
Scholarships and Bursaries

The Shuswap Community Foundation is a community non-profit organization that aids in the dispersal and management of endowed funds. Each year upwards of $7000 in scholarships and bursaries are awarded to students graduating from School District #83. This is the income generated by a
number of endowment funds created by community-minded individuals and administered by the Foundation. While the SCF administers the funds, the
School District is responsible for the awarding and distribution of the scholarships and bursaries which are listed below:
