WW Gunter Memorial Bursary: Call for Applications

The WW Gunter Memorial Bursary is awarded annually to a Canadian Archer between the ages of 15 and 20, who has competed or will be competing for Canada at a World Championship or international archery competition such as the Youth Olympic Games, and who is planning to continue their education at the post-secondary level. The archer must conduct themselves in a manner that is a credit to their sport, their country and always maintain a sense of dignity and sportsmanship in victory and defeat.

Any archer between the ages of 15 and 20 who meet these criteria may apply. Applications will be reviewed by the Canadian Archery Foundation committee. Applications are to consist of an introductory cover letter, autobiographical in nature, stating the length of time the archer has participated in the sport, their participation in Domestic competitions, previous experience in World Championships, Youth Olympic Games or other international archery competitions, and the archer’s plans for post-secondary education. The application will also include a short (1-2) page ‘essay’ on what it means to the archer to represent Canada at international archery competitions. Applicants should include a letter from the archer’s personal coach. In this letter, the personal coach can describe the archer’s abilities, successes, and how they conduct themselves as a representative of the sport, their country and their community.
