    MB STUDENT AID

    http://www.edu.gov.mb.ca/msa/planning-for-your-future/what-is-manitoba-student-aid.html

    What is Manitoba Student Aid? Do I qualify?
    We break it down for you: Who we are, what we do, what we can do for you and what it takes to be eligible for our program.

    Our program provides loans, grants and bursaries to Manitobans who need help paying for school.

    Student loans are calculated based on your financial need and are meant to supplement, not replace, your own resources. Just because you apply for a student loan does not mean you'll get one, and just because you get one does not mean you will get the maximum amount.

    If you do get a student loan, you don't have to make payments or pay interest on it while you are a full-time student.

     

    BURGER KING McLAMORE FOUNDATION

    http://burgerking.ca/bk-mclamore-foundation

    When BURGER KING® co-founder James W. McLamore was ill, the McLamore family, Burger King Corporation and BURGER KING® franchisees came together to start a foundation in his honour.

    In 2000, the BURGER KINGSM Scholars program was created to promote scholastic achievement  in Canada, the United States and Puerto Rico to continue the legacy of James W. McLamore. The education bursary program awards deserving students with scholarships of $1,000 and $5,000 to continue their education beyond high school.

    In 2004, the BKSM Family Fund was established as a not-for-profit charitable organization by Burger King Corporation, and began awarding funds, in times of hardship, to Burger King® employees.
