In addition to the two ENCOMPASS scholarships announced earlier this summer, individual scholarships were established at various high schools and colleges served by ENCOMPASS Benefits.
Some of these scholarships were administered directly by the school themselves and others by the Central Okanagan Bursary and Scholarship Society (COBBS). COBBS is a non-profit society that acts as an administrator for many schools in the Okanagan, receiving applications from students and matching them to scholarships and awards they are eligible for.
This year’s Scholarship recipients are:
- Heritage Christian School, Kelowna, BC: Ryan Purnell received a $500 scholarship at graduation. Ryan is furthering his education in Forensic Science in preparation to work in the investigative field with Police Services.
