The Moira Hearn Memorial Bursary (aka Moira Fund) provides financial assistance to SITE Members who have lost their jobs, or whose businesses are experiencing extreme financial difficulties. The fund aims to provide continuity of membership at a time when circumstances might preclude it.
To apply, individuals submit their details through the form below. Submissions are evaluated -without access to individual names - by a committee comprised of current and former SITE volunteer leaders.
Grants towards membership dues are then approved at up to 75% of the appropriate rate. In the event that the number of applications exceeds the available funds, grants will be awarded on the basis of number of years of SITE membership, chapter activity and contribution and attendance at SITE global events.
Members that submit their application by 11 December 2020 will be notified of their status prior to the end of the year. The deadline for all applications is 4 January 2021.
