The Effie Close and Andrew Jamault Bursaries are available to students residing in Saskatchewan who are wheelchair users. 

Amount: $2000

Number: 2

Deadline: December 1st (annually)

The Kinsmen Foundation is pleased to be the administrator of the Effie Close and Andrew Jamault Bursaries. Both Ms. Close and Mr. Jamault bequeathed estate funds to the Kinsmen Foundation to establish these bursaries.
