Cambrian’s scholarships and bursaries: making postsecondary education possible

Posted on Tuesday February 17, 2015

SUDBURY – Raising three kids under the age of six while going to school can be an expensive challenge.

Aaron Babin, a third-year Cambrian College student, has lightened the load significantly thanks to the Cambrian’s awards program. Babin, who is studying Business Administration – Accounting, won several awards this year.

“I have three children under the age of six and they go through clothes like candy, so these awards mean a brighter future for my family and a lighter load on our backs,” says Babin.

The award money has enabled him and his family to pay off some debt, removing a large source of stress and giving Babin more time to focus on his studies.

“Donating to the Cambrian’s scholarship and bursary program gives opportunities for families like mine to be able to gain a better way of living for the rest of our lives,” he says. “Without your support it would make going through school and after finishing school much more difficult. My family and I thank you from the bottom of our hearts.”

Cambrian College gives out hundreds of awards, bursaries and scholarships each year worth approximately $450,000.

The awards ceremony takes place February 18 from 7 to 8:30 p.m. in the Student Centre at Cambrian College’s Barrydowne campus.
