The North Simcoe Muskoka Local Health Integration Network Bursary was created to support Barrie and Collingwood PSW students interested in pursuing a career as a Personal Support Worker (PSW) in the in-home and in-community care sectors in North Simcoe County or the District of Muskoka. Eligible students will receive $5,000 toward tuition and other expenses.
Georgian will be disbursing $5,000 to 30 eligible students starting the PSW program at the Barrie or Collingwood Campuses beginning in January 2020. Please note that students who are receiving funding through the Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP), are responsible for reporting any scholarship amount they receive. For more information on how to report bursary funding in your OSAP application, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.

- Be passionate about seeking employment in a community-based organization that serves the in-home and in-community care sectors (this excludes hospitals, long-term care facilities and retirement homes) upon graduation.
