Scholarship Increase

Hello Everyone,

As my last act as president of the CGSA, I would like to announce the enhancement of our CGSA scholarship, established 1987. We are increasing the amounts awarded to 300$, from our previous awards of 150$. Also, we will be giving out 3 awards per year, and not just 2.

Changes are in motion, but will hopefully take effect in the 2015/2016 school year.

It’s been an honour to be your president.

Cheers,
Catherine
