The W.O.A.A. Scholastic Bursary Award was established as a result of a generous donation by Mr. and Mrs. Donald Gravett and family.  For many years Mr. Gravett had been a loyal supporter of the W.O.A.A. serving in varied capacities. 

WESTERN ONTARIO ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION

"DON GRAVETT MEMORIAL" BURSARY ASSISTANCE FUND

            The Bursary Assistance fund is an initiative administered by the Western Ontario Athletic Association.  As a registered non-profit corporation, specified in Letters Patent #000669529 dated July 24, 1986, and on the Gravett family’s behalf, the Trustees administer this educational endowment.

A student or apprentice may apply for a grant in order to purchase instruments, tools or related items.

Any of the above-mentioned items/articles must be directly related to and used/associated with the appropriate scholastic endeavor.
