Community Futures Sunshine Coast is seeking a local entrepreneur who could use $500 to further advance their education or general knowledge in business or social enterprise development.
The funds will come from a bursary created through an endowment three years ago, known as the Barrie Wilbee Bursary for Sunshine Coast Entrepreneurs. Barrie and his wife Bev will present the award during the Sunshine Coast Community Foundation’s annual granting ceremony Monday, June 17.
“We’re excited to support emerging business leaders who are committed to growing and advancing the Sunshine Coast through responsible business practices,” Barrie said. “We recognize it’s not easy, for start-up entrepreneurs especially, to free up time and cash for ongoing learning and development, and we hope this bursary will help.”
The Barrie Wilbee Bursary for Sunshine Coast Entrepreneurs is open to Sunshine Coast residents and their immediate family members. Applicants should be able to describe what type of course, workshop, personal development, or seminar they are interested in taking, and how financial support would help advance personal leadership of their business or social enterprise. Application details can be found at www.communityfutures.org/events.
The deadline for applications is noon on Thursday, June 6. Detailed questions can be directed to Zarah at 604-885-1959 ext. 221.
