The Make it Right Scholarship and Bursary recipients will be announced on August 19th

Research shows that many students who enroll in college, including those enrolled in construction courses drop out before completing their training.

The Holmes Foundation’s Make It Right® Scholarships are designed to encourage students in Canadian colleges and universities who have demonstrated a commitment to excellence in residential renovation or construction to complete their academic training.

Every academic year The Holmes Foundation will award up to ten scholarships of $1,500 each - up to five will be awarded to male students and up to five will be awarded to female students. The students must be entering or enrolled in a residential construction program at a Canadian college or university. The scholarships will be awarded in trust to students who are judged by The Holmes Foundation to have combined academic excellence with a commitment to a career in residential construction or renovation.
