Grade 12 Graduates Eligible for $16,000 through RE/MAX Quest for Excellence Bursary Program!
RE/MAX of Western Canada is committed to helping future community leaders by offering $16,000 in bursary funds through its annual Quest for Excellence Program. One recipient—in addition to his/her bursary—will receive a hot air balloon ride for two.
The Quest for Excellence Program recognizes the pursuits in leadership and community contributions of Western Canadian students. High school students graduating in 2020 from British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Yukon and Northwest Territories are encouraged to write an essay to convey the contributions they have made to enrich the lives of others and their communities through leadership, motivation, volunteering, and participation in charitable events or fundraising.
Sixteen winners will be selected from entries received online at remax.ca. Each winner will receive a $1,000 RE/MAX Quest for Excellence bursary. All 16 bursary recipients will be placed in a draw and one lucky student will also receive a hot air balloon ride for two from the closest major city. The application deadline is March 9, 2020. Award recipients will be notified in April 2020, with a formal presentation at the students’ commencement ceremonies.
“All of the students we recognize each year through Quest for Excellence have made positive impacts on their communities,” says Elton Ash, Regional Executive Vice President, RE/MAX of Western Canada. “This is a program we’re incredibly proud of because it helps empower these young leaders on their journey.”
The Quest for Excellence is open to all Grade 12 students attending high school from September 2019 – June 2020. Grade 12 students may not have participated in graduation commencement ceremonies in the past. Applicants must be a resident of one of the following provinces/territories.
