Seniors Calling ~ MROO Supports Scholarships for 3 Northwestern Ontario Students.

NORTHERN, ONTARIO  ~~~~~~  October 13, 2021  (LSNEWS)  Ontario Not-for-Profit, MROO recently awarded a total of $5,500 in scholarships to 3 local students in Thunder Bay as part of the MROO Student Scholarship Program for 2021.  

The Municipal Retirees Organization of Ontario (MROO) recently announced that their annual Student Scholarship Program distributed 73 scholarships to second-year students across the province. A grand total of $99,000 was awarded in the 17th year of the program’s existence.

MROO is divided into 9 Zones across Ontario with Zone Directors responsible for each region. Scholarships were awarded in each Zone, as well as a limited number in a region that encompasses the rest of the country.

This year the MROO Student Scholarship Program has distributed 73 scholarships to second-year post-secondary students across Ontario.

Recipients were determined based on the number of applicants and specific eligibility criteria, including the students’ leadership skills, volunteer experience, and commitment to making a difference in their communities. Recipients must all have a familial relationship to a MROO Lifetime Member.
