Best Buy Canada Grade 10 Scholarships
Through the generous support of Best Buy Canada, Boys and Girls Clubs youth from across Canada have the opportunity to pursue their higher education goals as recipients of the Best Buy Canada Grade 10 Scholarships.
Scholarship recipients are selected based on their outstanding contribution to their Boys and Girls Club and local community, good academic standing and financial need.
In 2016, 22 scholarships were awarded across Canada.
“I would like to express my sincere gratitude for the generous scholarship I have been awarded,” says John, a scholarship recipient and member of Boys and Girls Clubs in Ontario. “This scholarship will help me to make my education a centre point without financial instability and will encourage me to focus on my goals to better myself for the real world.”
The Best Buy Canada program promises students in Grade 10 a scholarship for their post-secondary education at a critical time when it may still be possible to influence their decision about whether or not to continue their studies past high school. Research indicates that while many students lack the financial resources to attend post-secondary education, many also lack accurate information about the costs, especially for tuition.
Technology Tools for Kids
In addition to the opportunities provided to scholarship recipients, Best Buy Canada has provided technology tools to kids at Clubs with donations of new and refurbished digital cameras, DVD players, and hundreds of computers and hardware. These donations from Best Buy Canada and its local stores have supported programming and given children and youth a chance to explore their creativity and support skills development.
