Bursary Program (2003-2008)...

The William R.A. Watson Bursaries

Between 2003 and 2008 we provided annual $1,000 bursaries to Grade 12 Students in memory of long term Masset resident Bill Watson who was our friend and employee.

These bursaries were split equally between the graduating students of the two communities - students of Haida ancestry and non-Haida ancestry (10 recipients).
