Gordon Wiebe Scholarships

February 20, 2019

With scholarship deadline quickly approaching we asked past scholarship recipients  what advice they would give to a young person from Winkler who is considering attending college or university. Noah Olfert, now in his third year studying Public management at the University of Guelph, proposed a big challenge to anyone that feels unsure: “Follow your instinct, even if it means going somewhere that seems crazy. There is so much opportunity out there.”

Scholarship application deadline is February 28.


Before submitting your application please remember the following:

Pay It Forward May

  Pay it Forward is something we can and should be doing all year round. The Winkler Community Foundation and Morden Area Foundation has chosen one month to be more active in our efforts – not because we have to, but because we want to. Not because we’ve experienced kindness from others, but because we want to work together to make our community strong and vibrant. Pay it Forward. Inspire others. Impact our Community.
