The 2021 season marks the 15th-consecutive year that the Atlantic Provinces and Standardbred Canada have partnered to offer the Atlantic Provinces Bursary Program. This project could award up to five students in the Atlantic provinces bursaries towards their postsecondary education this year.

If you are a student residing in the Atlantic provinces and attending a post-secondary institution (trade school, community college or university) this fall, this is an opportunity that could help you pay for your tuition.

The bursaries will be awarded based on participation in the industry, academic and financial need. Applicants will be required to submit a typewritten essay on the following topic:

Tell us why you love Canadian harness racing

Applicants must be Canadian citizens and be a child or spouse of an active Standardbred Canada member or an SC member themselves. Applicants must be currently enrolled in a post-secondary institution as of September 1, 2021.

Past recipients of the Atlantic Bursary are not eligible and students pursuing graduate degrees are not eligible.

A maximum of five bursaries worth up to $1,000 each will be awarded. Applications are available now and must be received at the Atlantic Provinces Harness Racing Commission by June 15, 2021.

The successful applicants will be announced the week of July 12th, 2021

This program is supported and funded by various organizations from the Atlantic provinces and Standardbred Canada. Partners from the Atlantic provinces include Nova Scotia Harness Racing Industry Association, Prince Edward Island Harness Racing Industry Association, and the 'Stretch Drive Fund,' a fund created by the Atlantic Provinces Harness Racing Commission's race officials.
