Objective

The Job Succession Scholarship aims at countering the exodus of young people from Prescott-Russell while encouraging the development of professional skills and trades to ensure the future of the region. It is intended for young high school graduates who want to pursue post-secondary studies in a trade or profession in demand, to return during and after their study project to work in Prescott-Russell.

Application to the Job Succession Scholarship is done through the Prescott-Russell high schools or the Centre’s website. The application period runs from November to March of each year. The selection of the winners is done through a rigorous selection process, according to pre-established parameters. An agreement is signed between the recipient and the Centre and the scholarship is paid in a minimum of two instalments.

Local businesses, employers and organizations are invited to hire this young workforce, and also to take part in the project by becoming succession builders themselves.

Thus, 11 scholarships were awarded this year to as many young high school graduates heading for post-secondary studies. The year 2021 will certainly have been a special year due to the pandemic.
