RAY’S is a Creemore-based Charitable Corporation that supports area students in their pursuit of post-secondary education to enable them to optimize employment options.
RAY’S is a volunteer organization with no paid employees. All tax-deductible donations are applied directly to benefit area youth.
RAY’S volunteers work with local schools, parent groups and residents to raise funds and apply these to fulfill the educational and financial needs of students using workshops, mentoring, scholarships and bursaries.
Scholarships of up to $20,000 (payable up to $5,000 per year over 4 years) are available to students applying to a recognized Canadian University.
Students must apply using the official Application Form (available below or obtained through their school).
Applications are assessed by an independent selection committee for approval by the Scholarship Committee and the RAY’S Board.
Students are advised of the results by early June at which time a mentor is assigned to ensure the student has someone to contact for help with any issues encountered.
Bursaries of up to $1,000 per year are available to students seeking a college or technical diploma or certificate.
Students must apply using the official Application Form (available below or through their school).
