Council approves additional scholarships

MORE GOOD NEWS FOR ASPIRING TEACHERS: College Council established two new scholarships at its March meeting.

The awards, valued at $2,000 each, will be presented annually.

Now it’s up to Council’s Executive Committee to come up with eligibility and selection criteria and a process to administer the awards.

The committee will also explore new means to market the awards and to raise funds to support and sustain them.

The new awards join the Joseph W. Atkinson Scholarship, now in its 10th year, which is named for the College’s second registrar and bestowed annually to a teacher candidate who excels at the undergraduate level and is enrolled at an Ontario faculty of education.

To support the Atkinson scholarship, the College is hosting a golf tournament on July 5 at the Glen Cedars Golf Club, just east of Markham, north of Highway 7. College members, stakeholders, suppliers and friends can play. The $150 fee includes green fees, cart, prizes, a light breakfast, refreshments and lunch.

The tournament is the sole means of fundraising for the Atkinson scholarship. To play, donate, sponsor or learn more, contact Karin Lang, toll-free in Ontario at 1-888-534-2222, extension 625 or email
