May 27, 2016 - New SLIC Bursaries Awarded

As part of a continuing effort to provide direct support to its members, the SLIC membership approved funds for language bursaries for SLIC members at the 2015 Annual General Meeting. SLIC awarded three bursaries, of $500.00 each, to members pursuing post-secondary coursework related to the instruction or delivery of second language curriculum in Alberta.

The successful recipients of the new SLIC bursaries were randomly drawn from the applications submitted to SLIC. The SLIC Executive thanks all members who applied for a SLIC bursary.
