About this Bursary
The Nauwigewauk Education Foundation Inc., is a registered Charity based in Nauwigewauk, New Brunswick. This small educational charity provides annual bursaries to individuals pursuing post secondary education. The Foundation was started in 1999, when a few residents and former residents wanted to provide a monetary gift to individuals of any age that were pursuing further education. The award is open to all students of the Nauwigewauk Darlings Island LSD attending post secondary schools and colleges, both in the public and private sectors. Grant Beyea Memorial Bursary As one of the individuals involved in the early stages of the Nauwigewauk Education Foundation, Grant Beyea was a resident of Darlings Island with strong family ties through the Beyea and Henderson families. As an advocate for post secondary training for all ages, and as a champion of the underdog, the criteria for the awards were reflected in these ideals. Grant was unfortunately killed in an automobile accident in January 1997. The Foundations first Award was named in his honour. Joseph Thompson Memorial Bursary The Joseph Thompson Memorial Bursary was awarded for the first time in the summer of 2016. Joe Thompson is fondly remembered as a well respected community advocate and volunteer for Nauwigewauk, as an educator extraordinaire over his career in the area, as well as a gentleman farmer and as a strong member and leader within the faith community. Joe unfortunately passed away in 2015. The Nauwigewauk Education foundation is extremely grateful to the Thompson Family for establishing this bursary in Joes name.
