Since its inception in 2004, the bursary program has grown thanks in part to the interest from our corporate partners and signatures sponsors Tripemco Burlington Insurance (www.tripemco.com) along with Aviva Traders and Economical Select. Over the past decade, they have contributed $126,000 toward this program, funding 98 students to date. We look forward to another successful year in 2015!
