Seven students will start their full-time programs at Georgian this September with substantial additional funding to help pay their tuition.
Mitchell Hertner of Cambridge will receive a $2,000 bursary toward his first-year tuition. He won Georgian’s Twitter contest by tweeting about the program of his choice – Pre-Service Firefighter Education and Training. He’s been accepted and will start the program this fall.
“I knew it was important to find a school that was right for my postsecondary education and, after some research, I decided Georgian College was the place for me,” says Mitchell. “This is an incredible opportunity for me to achieve my dream of becoming a firefighter by pushing my physical and mental limits. The qualified instructors and the program’s practical-based approach make me feel confident that I will receive the best education possible for my given career choice.”
Five other incoming students will receive $1,000 tuition grants. They were chosen from among all students who accepted their offers to Georgian by the end of Open House weekend in March.
