The GBLT oversees the King Family Bursaries of $3,500 each, supporting the objectives of the Wally and Marilyn King Endowment Fund.

The King Family Bursary was created to support special projects which promote knowledge and appreciation of the eastern shore of Georgian Bay and the North Channel, and its unique environment, history, communities and/or culture. Scientists, academics, artists, authors, musicians, writers and others are encouraged to apply. For a complete list of past bursary recipients, please click here.

The bursaries are supported by Wally and Marilyn King, through the King Endowment Fund, and John Hartman. “Marilyn and I are simply delighted to see our endowment activated with this bursary and very pleased to see the additional matching donations/bursary as well. We wish the recipients good wishes and success in whatever project that is selected.” -Wally King

Two bursaries of $3,500 each are awarded each spring. The next round of applications will open in December 2018. Information about the bursaries and an application form can be found below.
