Amount: $750

Number available: one bursary per school

Today’s youth is tomorrow’s future. As the cost of further education is one of the biggest challenges facing students, Manitoba Blue Cross offers scholarships and bursaries to those Manitobans who may not otherwise have the opportunity to pursue post-secondary education. Since 1985, they have awarded funds to hundreds of students to help them pursue their goals.

The Manitoba Blue Cross Bursary for Students with Special Needs is offered directly through the participating schools.
