The application deadline for both bursaries is now closed. Please check back in March 2022. 

“Whipper” Billy Watson Education Bursary

Whipper Billy Watson Bursary was founded by the employees of the former Canadian Airlines International.  Whipper Billy is remembered for his dedication and passion in helping “kids” with a physical disability reach their maximum potential.  Whipper was a mentor emphasizing the importance of an education.  Education changes every child’s world and is particularly the great equalizer for disabled kids as it awakens their expectations.

This bursary has been established to assist students with physical disabilities in full-time study at an Ontario College of Applied Arts & Technology. Bursaries are granted each year to two students who demonstrate potential for studies at the Community College level.
