IYC Bursary Winners Announced

In honour of 2012 being designated as the International Year of Co-operatives by the United Nations, Atlantic credit unions offered eight (8) special one-time $1,000 bursaries to Atlantic post-secondary students with two bursaries being awarded in each province.

Bursaries were scored by level of involvement with co-operatives, credit unions, school and community events and causes. Selection was difficult due to the number and quality of applications received, and we were very impressed by the great work that the students are doing. The Selection Committee selected two winners per province, and the recipients of the Special 2012 IYC Bursaries are as follows:

New Brunswick:

  • Kevin Matthews, Fredericton, NB
  • Nathan Paton, Fredericton, NB

Newfoundland and Labrador:
