Every year, the J. Harper Kent Charitable Foundation awards scholarships to students from Bathurst High School and École Secondaire Népisiquit. Since the foundation was established in 1976, it has awarded more than seven million dollars to students from the Chaleur region. The value of the scholarships have increased in value to echo Mr. Kent’s strong dedication to education, as well as to address rising costs of tuition. Up to full tuition is awarded to successful recipients.
The scholarships are unique in that the Foundation takes a very holistic approach in awarding them, looking at not only academic achievement and financial need, but also community involvement and future aspirations.READ MORE ABOUT J. HARPER KENT
