Do you have a great idea to make a positive difference in your community? Do you want to see that idea become a reality? Coastal Community would like to help you make that happen and reward your efforts with $2,000 towards your post-secondary education.
Your Plan
To apply, we ask that you submit a project idea that will help improve your community. Look closely and see where you can make a difference. Keep it simple!
Coastal Community will award up to eight scholarships of $2,000 each. Up to $1,000 will also be awarded to two scholarship recipients to implement their community project! This amount is separate from the eight scholarships awarded to all scholarship recipients. Once the community project has been implemented, an additional $500 will be awarded to the applicants whose plans were implemented.
If you are chosen to implement your project
  • You will be reimbursed up to $1,000 to cover the cost of implementing your project.
  • Your project must be completed by August 31, 2020.
  • You must sign a project agreement and waiver prior to implementing your project.
  • Upon completion of your project, you must provide a final project report to Coastal Community.
Please Note: One of the eight scholarships will be awarded to a relative of a Coastal Community Employee. A relative refers to a child or grandchild of a current Coastal Community employee.
