About Kin Canada Bursaries
Post-secondary education is expensive. Let us help!

Since its inception in 1994, $1,096,000 has been awarded to 1096 students across Canada. The amount disbursed in any one year depends on the balance of the Hal Rogers Endowment Fund and its governing laws.

Kin Canada Clubs play a vital role in the Kin Canada Bursaries program. They make donations to grow the fund, which affects how many bursaries are awarded each year.
