Bright Futures

In 2014/15, the Manitoba Government is once again investing in the Bright Futures fund to support programs aimed at improving high school graduation rates and increasing access to post-secondary education for disadvantaged and low income students. The Bright Futures fund supports community-based organizations and partner schools to address the key barriers to post-secondary education that are faced by under-represented students.

In 2014/15, over 3100 students will participate in programming and/or receive bursary dollars for post-secondary education! The Bright Futures fund is proud to work with the following programs:
