The region will distribute $2,500 among eligible candidates to offset the cost of the program. The minimum award for selected candidates will be $500. Scholarship funds are intended to only fund a portion of tuition. Applicants will be responsible to fund the remaining portion. The award winner(s) will be expected to complete each module of the program with at least 80% to earn the certificate.
