The Be a GEM Foundation Scholarship Fund is for grade twelve students who have dedicated their time to community service, academic involvement, and/or leadership ability to inspire others. Although there are no restrictions to the kind of work being done, applicants must be able to show long-term commitment and how they've made an impact in their school and community.
The Vats Memorial Scholarship was created in honour of our loving grandmother. She was strong, compassionate, independent, and most of all full of love. She wore her heart on her sleeve and lived her life giving back to others. The annual Vats Memorial Scholarship will be awarded to a recipient whose traits are just as generous.
