Holland College will participate in Project Hero, a scholarship program that provides financial aid for children of Canadian Forces personnel who have lost their lives while serving in an active mission, Holland College President Dr. Brian McMillan announced today.
Starting in September 2010, Holland College will waive tuition for all one year certificate or two year diploma programs for eligible applicants. In order to be eligible for a Project Hero scholarship, recipients must be a dependant of a member of the Canadian Forces who lost his or her life as a result of being deployed on an international operation, under the age of 26, and accepted to Holland College as a regular student.
"We are proud to be able to honour our fallen soldiers by ensuring that their dependants do not suffer further hardship as a result of their loved one's sacrifice," Dr. McMillan said. "It is one small way that we can show our appreciation for those who serve our country so selflessly."
Further details regarding the Holland College Project Hero scholarship program are available at here, or by calling 1-800-446-5265.
