The Kinsmen Foundation is pleased to be the administrator of the Effie Close and Andrew Jamault Bursaries. Both Ms. Close and Mr. Jamault bequeathed estate funds to the Kinsmen Foundation to establish these bursaries. As the donors directed, the bursaries are to be awarded to a full-time student who has graduated grade 12 in Saskatchewan and is confined to a wheelchair. Each bursary is valued at $2,000.

The student may be in any year of any discipline or program and must be a resident of Saskatchewan. Selection will be the sole discretion of the Kinsmen Foundation and will be based on demonstrated financial need and academic achievement (which may be based on the nature and extent of physical challenges).

Applicants for both bursaries are required to submit

  • A completed application form;
  • An an original or school certified copy of your Saskatchewan Education Record of Standing or a School Transcript with the school seal or stamp;
  • Confirmation of full-time registration at Saskatchewan based University or technical school;
  • Two letters of reference;
  • Confirmation of disability.

Incomplete submissions will not be considered. Applications are to be submitted to the Kinsmen Foundation office by December 1 of each year. The award will be announced annually at the beginning of March.
