The Knick Knack Nook Re-Use It Store Society aims to foster environmental responsibility through both action and education. Each year, it awards bursary monies to post-secondary students with ties to Bowen who are studying toward careers in support of environmental sustainability. The Knick Knack Nook has partnered with us to gain support in managing the application and selection process, and in issuing the bursary cheques.
For 2014, the Foundation paid $10,000 in bursary monies on the Knick Knack Nook’s behalf to five talented local students: Noah Carson (UBC), Ashley Callister (UBC), Bev Rapley (SFU), Lissy Allen (UVIC), and Annie Faragher (UBC). Previous winners included: Ashley Callister (2012, Western), Charles Clark (2013, UBC), Geoffrey Lewicki (2011 and 2012, UBC), Raya Semeniuk (2013, McGill), Carla Skuce (2013, Royal Roads).
We will call for 2015 applications and post full details early in 2015. In the meantime, interested applicants can refer to these application details to get an idea of what they will need to submit, and how recipients will be selected.
