Apply for the Doug Leslie Bursary: Editors and Staff Welcome to Apply
Doug Leslie was The Link’s first editor-in-chief.
When he passed away in 2012, a bursary fund was set up in his name. Every year $1,000 is distributed in his honour to Linkies in financial need–to either one person or split between two.
To be eligible you need to have staff status, meaning you’ve contributed at least four separate times to four issues this semester.
You must also be registered as a student and returning next year.
To apply, you’ll need to write us a one-to-two page letter, and have it sent to us before Nov. 28. It should describe your level of financial need, how you plan on contributing to The Link in the coming year, and how the bursary will help you do so. You’ll also need to include three of your contributions to the publication.
Send everything in PDF form to email@example.com before Nov. 28. Good luck!
