To support post-secondary students who reside in Vaudreuil-Soulanges and are also Desjardins members, Caisse Desjardins de Vaudreuil-Soulanges is pleased to announce the return of its annual Student Grants Contest from October 20 to November 30, 2016. The launch of this contest coincides with the International Day of Savings and Credit Cooperatives, as part of Cooperation Week.
Academic perseverance is always an important value for Desjardins. That's why Desjardins Vaudreuil-Soulanges organizes this annual contest to give our students a hand and encourage them to continue with their postsecondary education. A random draw to be held in December will decide the 50 winners who will be receiving grants ranging from $500 to $5,000. Contest participants will subsequently receive a communication stating whether they have won.
Students wishing to enter the 2016-2017 Student Grants Contest must complete the online entry form available at www.caissevaudreuilsoulanges.com during the period of October 20 to November 30, 2016. Eligibility conditions apply, including being a Desjardins member by the end of the contest, specifically by November 30, 2016; being a full time, post-secondary student (CEGEP or university) in the fall of 2016 or spring of 2017; and having a permanent address in the territory of Vaudreuil-Soulanges.
Note that the winners must definitely attend one of the two brunches planned in the area for Saturday, January 28 and Saturday, February 4, 2017, when Desjardins will host the 50 winners and award them their respective grants.
Set up in 2009, the student grants contest has donated to date more than $500,000 to over 450 students, ranging from the DEP (CEGEP professional diploma) to Master’s (university graduate school).
