For over two decades, the Ontario Branch of The Canadian Society of Club Managers has proudly offered scholarships to deserving students with a career interest in the private club industry. To date we have awarded over 50 scholarships totaling over $50,000. This scholarship is available for all job disciplines including food and beverage, golf & other sport sections, maintenance and administration.
The Committee's mandate is to educate and promote the club industry as a viable career option. We recognize that it takes a combination of both hard work and educational funding for most students to achieve their goal to a post-secondary education. This scholarship program has helped to address the critical need for student funding and to meet our Society's objective of attracting young talent into our Club industry.
This year, the Ontario Branch is proud to award two separate $2,000 scholarships to qualified students currently working at an Ontario Branch private club. The Ontario Branch was pleased to have received multiple quality applications from students. This achievement is a testament to the on-going commitment of the CSCM and the Ontario Branch to develop the brightest and talented future Club Managers.
On behalf of the Ontario Branch Board of Directors and the Career Awareness Committee, we are pleased to announce the two deserving recipients of the 2019 Ontario Scholarship Awards. Sean McAvoy of Oakville Golf Club and Petula Perdikoulias of Lambton Golf & Country Club.
In addition to the $2,000 scholarship, the students also receiving a one year student membership with the CSCM and we hope that they will find their association with our Society to be beneficial and rewarding to their career goals. Also Cornelia and Jordan are invited to be on the Career Awareness' committee.
