BOATING ONTARIO ASSOCIATION PRESENTS $1,000 BURSARIES TO EACH OF THREE STUDENTS IN THE MARINE ENGINE MECHANIC PROGRAM AT GEORGIAN COLLEGE

Boating Ontario Bursaries

Feb 4, 2020

On Friday, January 24th at the Toronto International Boat Show, three students currently enrolled in the Mechanical Techniques – Marine Engine Mechanic program at Georgian College’s Midland Campus stopped by the Boating Ontario Association booth. Boating Ontario CEO Rick Layzell chatted with the students about how they’re progressing in the program and extending an invitation to them to attend the Boating Ontario Regional Meetings in March.
 
The three aspiring marine technician students applied for the travel & accommodations bursary earlier this fall and were each presented with a $1000 cheque courtesy of the MarineWorx Development Fund. The criteria for the bursary are that the “student travel must exceed 100 KM distance from their home to the Midland campus and must be referred by a Boating Ontario member.” The students had previously received a cheque for $1000 in November to help cover their costs during the semester while focusing on their education.

The MarineWorx Development Fund is an industry funded, education focused program designed for all members, of all sizes, in all markets. The purpose of MarineWorx is to reinvest in our industry by providing bursaries, scholarships and discounts to members and member employees on education programs & courses centered around the marine sector. Since the program launched in June of 2018, the MarineWorx Development Fund has provided funding close to 50 employees within our industry to the tune of over $15,000. Our 2019/2020 plan will see MarineWorx putting over $30,000 in education support back into the industry.
