January 20, 2023 – Government of PEI: Supports have doubled for high school students who volunteer at a registered volunteer organization and receive a Community Service Bursary.
More than $270,300 has been distributed to 260 post-secondary students this school year through the Community Service Bursary.
“This year we doubled the Community Service Bursary from $750 to $1,500. We are so fortunate to have community minded and determined young people throughout this province.” says Minister of Education and Lifelong Learning Natalie Jameson.
“Expanding the bursary is supporting students as they pay for college or university, and it encourages young people to volunteer earlier and more often in their communities, which is good for everyone.”
