Bright Futures Scholarship

The Bright Futures Scholarship is made possible by a generous gift from Barbara Killick, formerly a senior staff member at Calgary Public Library and a witness over many years to the positive impact made by young volunteers on the lives of Calgarians.

The scholarship will provide $3,500 to a young volunteer who has demonstrated commitment, enthusiasm, and initiative in their volunteer role.

Completed applications are due on September 25, 2018. The first scholarship will be awarded at the Library's annual volunteer recognition event on November 9, 2018, in the new Central Library.
