John M. Kerr Memorial Bursary Award

John M. Kerr Memorial Bursary Award

Each year The Imperial Sovereign Court of the Wild Rose grants bursary awards to students of the Gay, Lesbian, Transgender, and Bisexual community in any accredited post-secondary education program within the Province of Alberta.

The number of bursaries and amounts awarded can vary from year to year but are generally between $500.00 and $750.00. Recipients of an award are notified of their successful application and are asked to be present for the presentation of the awards during the annual Coronation Ball.

2021 Applications are now open! 

Emperor and Empress 45 selected the Bursary as their main beneficiary for this year. As such, we anticipate giving out much higher bursaries than the usual amounts of $500-$750. Anticipated awards for 2021 are between $1000 and $5000. Recipients of an award are notified of their successful application via email and cheques will be mailed out at the end of August 2021.

Applications for awards must be received by the ISCWR no later than 11:59 pm, Sunday, July 4th, 2021.

Applications must be complete, and all requested information must be included with the application upon submission.
