The Lifesaving Society – Nova Scotia Branch has established a scholarship fund to be awarded to Lifesaving Society award holders, in varying amounts, to assist with the cost of post secondary education.
The Lifesaving Society is a national volunteer organization and registered charity, composed of tens of thousands of individual members and over 2,000 affiliated aquatic facilities, municipalities, waterfronts and schools. Established in England in 1891 as The Swimmers' Life Saving Society, we became the Royal Life Saving Society in 1904. Today, we are known to Canadians simply as the Lifesaving Society.
You may be eligible to receive one of these awards if you are a Lifesaving Society award holder who is currently enrolled in a full-time post-secondary education course for the 2017-2018 academic year. The Lifesaving Society reserves the right not to award the scholarships in the event that no suitable candidates apply. The basic criteria for selection for the scholarships are as follows: academic performance, financial need and proven dedication to the vision of the Lifesaving Society, which is to make Nova Scotia a water smart and water active province.
