About the Scholarship & Scholar Bursary

Dr. J Harper Kent Scholar Bursary Award

The Dr. J. Harper Kent Scholar Bursary was established by the J. Harper Kent Charitable Foundation in 2017. One bursary is awarded annually to a Bathurst High School or École Secondaire Népisiguit student beginning an undergraduate degree program in the fall of their graduating year. This award has a value of $50,000 payable over a four year course of study in the amount of $12,500 per year. Recipients are required to maintain a 3.7 / 4.0 scholarship grade point average each term to renew this scholarship.

The criteria for the scholarship includes excellence in academics, financial need, leadership qualities and aspirations for future success. The applicants are asked to submit an essay giving the Selection Committee an indication of their leadership capabilities and what receiving this scholarship would mean to them.

Finalists will be interviewed and attendance is required.

The application deadline is always February 28th.
