Don Fawcett Leadership Bursary
The Don Fawcett Leadership Bursary provides financial assistance to high school students who are pursuing aquatic leadership certifications. The Bursary subsidizes the cost of course fees and required material for swimming, lifesaving or coaching leadership certifications of the Lifesaving Society, YMCA, Canadian Red Cross or national aquatic sport organizations. Other aquatic leadership training or certification may be eligible.
Eligibility is restricted to students enrolled in Ontario boards of education that participate in Ontario Teachers Aquatic Standard (OTAS).
The Bursary honours the memory of Don Fawcett, executive director of the OTAS program, in recognition of his leadership and dedication to the aquatic field.
