Bursaries and Field Trips

Bursaries and Field Trips

Every year SEG awards one or two $1000 bursaries to a graduate from School District 54 who has a strong interest in science, trades or technology. It's our way of encouraging young people to consider working with the industry.  Click here for details on the 2015 bursaries.

In 2013 Ian Douglas, pictured here with SEG's Judi L'Orsa, was one of the winners.
