Trails Danielle Dion Bursary

Trails Danielle Dion Bursary for Post Secondary School

All Trails Alumni are invited to apply to the Trails Danielle Dion Bursary for funding support of their post-secondary education. The Trails Danielle Dion Bursary was established by Sylvain Dion in memory of his late wife Danielle Dion, and since its inception over 20 years ago, it has helped numerous Trails Alumni, including 35 this year with tuition expenses and mentorship supporting academic and future goals. 

Beyond just the impact of financial support, Bursary Recipients are linked with a Bursary Mentor with whom they meet at least quarterly to review transcripts, reflect on goals and successes, as well as discuss challenges they may be facing.
