The Eddy Narducci Calculus Bursary was established in 2016 by Tamara and Chris Jones ‘99 in honour of Eddy Narducci – an inspiration to all his former students and a mentor to Chris with his post-secondary programming. The Bursary was established with the blessing of Sandra Narducci and family.

The Bursary will be used to offset tuition costs.

Emilio '05 and Gabriel '05 Grossi Bursary - $19,870
The Emilio ‘05 & Gabriel ‘05 Grossi Bursary was established in February 2017 by Emilio and Gabriel, to provide financial assistance to a student entering Grade 11, with a 75% minimum average, and being a member of a Football or Track and Field team. The bursary includes full tuition plus incidental fees for the Grade 11 and Grade 12 years, provided the financial need is required and the 75% minimum average is maintained.

In order to establish a named bursary, award or scholarship at St. Michael’s College School a minimum gift of $25,000 is required.
 
However, the donor may donate a gift of less than $25,000 up-front with the balance due within 5 years (e.g. donate $10,000 up-front and pledge $15,000 to be payable over 5 years at $3,000 per year). The Donor intends for the gift to be used to establish a perpetual endowed fund in trust with the School to establish a bursary upon the terms and conditions agreed upon by the donor and the School. 
 
Smaller gifts may be considered for special prizes or awards; however, the donor should consult with the Office of Advancement prior to making the gift. As well Donations can be made to honour or in memoriam to an already established bursary.
