Education Scholarships

Rural students in Canada continue to underperform their urban counterparts in every measurable outcome, including increasing dropout rates. This is manifest on Cortes Island, where the issues of rural students are compounded by also be remote, with high school students forced to leave their homes or leave with their families to seek secondary education.

The CICF is working toward helping Cortes Island youth reach their potential through the development of the Cortes Island Academy, youth programming and support, and through our scholarship program.  Our scholarship programs is designed to support Cortes Island youth to access higher education, mentorships, and post-graduate skills training.
