$500,000 scholarship fund for Langley students announced

Applications to Eric Woodward Foundation initiative close March 24

A new scholarship program for Langley teens to pursue post-secondary education has been announced by the Eric Woodward Foundation, which has committed a minimum of $500,000 dollars over the next five years, starting with at least five to eight scholarships to be awarded in 2022, starting for this September.

“I didn’t have anyone helping me get through university, and it’s hard, especially when you don’t have perfect grades,” Woodward said.

“Where we can, we want to help with that.”

Within a qualifying program, each awarded scholarship will cover the full cost of tuition for up to four consecutive years, or until a first bachelor’s degree or diploma is achieved.
