Athlete bursary launched by BC Games

Athletes competing at the Nanaimo 2014 BC Summer Games can apply to receive one of 16 bursaries of $500 each.

The B.C. Games Society and Coast Capital Savings have teamed up to support young athletes’ pursuit of achievement through a new athlete bursary program.

Athletes competing at the Nanaimo 2014 BC Summer Games can apply to receive one of 16 bursaries of $500 each.

The bursary is intended to recognize athletes who have achieved in athletics and education but, more importantly, go above and beyond in their communities through leadership and volunteer activities.

Athletes who have qualified to compete at the 2014 BC Summer Games can apply for the bursary by completing the online application form at www.bcgames.org.

The deadline for applications is July 4. Winners will be announced at the closing ceremony of the Nanaimo 2014 BC Summer Games on July 20.
