Our Manitoba Chapter has created an annual scholarship to be awarded in memory of Lyall Meyers to the child of a Chapter member (age 8 to 16) who wishes to attend a summer camp.
The Camp would be selected by the child’s parents after their consideration of the ability of the camp to supply the child with appropriate gluten free food during his or her visit to the facility.
An application form should be completed giving pertinent information with a short paragraph stating why the child should be selected to receive this award, the amount required according to the cost quoted by the camp, the dates he/she wishes to attend, etc. The child would be encouraged to write a request letter also. A deadline date for application would be January 6th, the year the first award is to be made.
A committee of three (a Chapter Executive member, a member at large and a representative of the Meyers family, if they wish to participate) will determine who would be selected when they meet before January 31st . This will allow for the advance booking to be made at the chosen camp for the upcoming summer. The scholarship will be in the form of a cheque that would be made payable to the chosen camp which the Chapter will forward to the camp.
Application forms are available on our website or at the October and December general meetings.
