Given the current COVID-19 pandemic and the resultant closing of schools, The Kindness Foundation of Canada has extended the application deadline for the Nadine Marshall Memorial and the How to Do Some Good Scholarships. The new application deadline will be May 31, 2020.
Applications will also be accepted by email at [email protected]
The Nadine Marshall scholarship has been established to recognize exceptional high school graduating students, inspired by the vision of a kinder world and committed to making a difference, with a scholarship to assist them in furthering their education.
It is our hope that the recognition of our recipient’s important work will inspire them to continue to be involved in similar initiatives through their post-secondary years and into adult life.
The How to Do Some Good scholarship has been established to support the initiative, community-mindedness, enthusiasm, and commitment of a Vancouver High School graduate. It is established in honour of our community partner, How to Do Some Good, whose founder Mandy Pui, is also a board member of The Kindness Foundation.
How to Do Some Good is a collaborative and inclusive group of individuals giving back to the community in Vancouver and Victoria, Canada. One of the purposes of The Kindness Foundation is to support registered charities and community causes by developing and organizing volunteer events, and recruiting members of the public across any demographic to provide social good in the areas of; the environment, children and youth, families, the aged, those living with disabilities, or providing public amenities. The Kindness Foundation and How to Do Some Good work in alignment to organize these community events to connect and give back to the community and to promote kindness.
It is our hope that the recipient of this scholarship will be enabled to grow their personal commitment to service in their community, empowered to implement a service project, and continue their education to become a well-rounded, kind and contributing member of society.
The deadline to apply for these two scholarships is April 16, 2020.
