Muskoka Community Foundation will be accepting applications for a second round of granting from the South and Central Almaguin Education Fund from October 1, 2018 to November 16, 2018. The South and Central Almaguin Education Fund is intended to support high school students, residing in South and Central Almaguin, who due to financial constraints may not have the opportunity to attend a post-secondary education institution.
To be eligible individuals must be a high school student, residing in South or Central Almaguin and is open to students attending high school either in Almaguin or Muskoka. The applicant must be furthering their education at a post- secondary level which may include attendance at an accredited university, college, trade school or other accredited institution which leads to a degree, diploma or certificate upon completion.
Applications will be accepted from October 1, 2018 to November 16, 2018. Successful applicants will be notified by December 1, 2018.

Students are eligible to receive up to $5000 in funding.
This is the second year that grants have been available to students living in the South and Central Almaguin region. In 2017 five students received grants totaling $20,000 to help assist with their first year of post-secondary education.
