Poppy & Remembrance

Bursaries

Poppy Fund monies are available for bursaries. Recipients must be Children, Grandchildren, or Great Grandchildren of veterans or ex-service personnel as specified in the General By-Laws.

Legion Membership is not a requirement to obtain a bursary.

These bursaries are given on the basis of financial need as opposed to scholarships, which are given on the basis of scholastic ability.

Poppy Fund Monies can be used only to assist students in our geographical area, namely The City of Coquitlam.

Applications and full instruction are available from:
