Toronto, Ontario (PRWEB) February 9, 2010
Destiny Solutions, the leading provider of administrative software for continuing and professional education, announced today the release of the 2010-2011 Mary Cone Barrie Scholarship.
The Mary Cone Barrie Scholarship is an annual scholarship granted by Destiny Solutions to help two qualified students achieve their continuing education goals with two $2500 awards. Established in 2008, the Mary Cone Barrie Scholarship is given each year to honor Mary Cone Barrie, former Director of Continuing Studies at the University of Toronto, and her contributions and dedication to continuing education.
To be eligible for the Mary Cone Barrie Scholarship, students must currently be enrolled in a course or program through the continuing education division of a Canadian or American college or university. All applicants must also demonstrate the desire to improve their lives through continuing education, a dedication to learning, and the need for financial assistance.
"We value the critical role CE plays in enabling millions of people to transform their lives during these turbulent times. This scholarship was created to help make CE more accessible to those who need it the most," says Shaul Kuper, CEO at Destiny Solutions.
The Mary Cone Barrie Scholarship is unique. While there are a large number of financial aid options available to full-time students, this scholarship is exclusively devoted to continuing education students. This distinction is especially important in the current economic environment, where many people have recently been laid off or struggle to balance work and school.
Last year's winners are both working toward positive changes in their lives--changes that are within reach thanks to the Mary Cone Barrie Scholarship. Jonathan Lambert, one of last year's winners, comments, "Winning the scholarship meant I could finally focus my attention on my schooling and my son because I knew my tuition was covered. That meant everything to me and my family."
For Masoudeh Kazemiashtiani, last year's other award winner, winning the Mary Cone Barrie Scholarship meant taking the first step toward achieving her educational goals in Canada. "My goal is to get back to the position of where I was in Iran. This scholarship will help me get the education I need to achieve this goal."
The deadline to submit applications for this year's Mary Cone Barrie Scholarship is 5:00pm EDT on Friday July 30, 2010. Winners will be announced in September via a press release posted on Destiny Solutions' website.
