The W. Garfield Weston Fellowship Program Established at Loyalist College

March 15, 2013

Belleville, Ontario, March 14, 2013 – At the Loyalist College Board of Governors meeting, the College and The W. Garfield Weston Foundation announced a three-year pilot project which will provide financial support for students entering Skilled Trades programs.

Designed to attract students to Skilled Trades careers, the new W. Garfield Weston Fellowship Program will offer tuition and bursary incentives to help students train for and succeed in this growing labour market.  A total of $240,000 will be available during the three-year program.

“Today we step into the future with Loyalist College to create a model program to address Canada’s great need for skilled workers,” wrote Eliza Mitchell, Chair of the Education Committee with The W. Garfield Weston Foundation. “The W. Garfield Weston Foundation’s commitment will enable Loyalist College over the next three years to shape a program that will help over 60 talented individuals to build lasting careers in the skilled trades. It will provide incentives for students to go beyond a one-year certificate to earn a diploma or complete apprenticeship training, enabling them to turn a job into a career.”

The pilot project will provide 30 post-secondary students and 30 apprentices with tuition credits from the College, and bursary funding from The W. Garfield Weston Foundation to complete their education at Loyalist over the next three years.  The project will begin in the fall of 2013.

“We fully expect that at the end of the three years, the Loyalist program will be one that leads other Colleges forward in building a stronger workforce,” wrote Eliza Mitchell. “It is our pleasure to be working with Loyalist in shaping this innovative program. Our family Foundation has a long history of supporting students interested in pursuing a College education. In the 1990s, we established the W. Garfield Weston Scholars program, the first national scholarship program for College students.  Each year we are delighted to hear about the 50 leading students who have been given the support they need to attend their College of choice thanks to that program.”

“We are very proud to partner with The W. Garfield Weston Foundation in this initiative,” said Loyalist President Maureen Piercy. “Support like this is so important to bring focus to Skilled Trades education and training.   We applaud the directors for their vision and support in establishing The W. Garfield Weston Foundation Fellowship Program. Loyalist is committed to enhancing opportunities for individuals interested in careers in Skilled Trades. We know that growing demands for training of a highly skilled workforce will be met by programs such as those taught in our Sustainable Skills, Technology and Life Sciences Centre.”

The W. Garfield Weston Foundation is a private Canadian family foundation, established in the 1950s by Willard Garfield Weston and his wife Reta.  In 1924 Garfield inherited his father’s company and during his life established bakeries and other successful enterprises throughout Canada and in many parts of the world. Today, these businesses include the George Weston Limited and Loblaw Companies Limited, companies in food retailing, processing and distribution.  The founders believed that as the funds are generated through the hard work and success of these Canadian companies, grants should be given in Canada for the benefit of Canadians. For three generations, The W. Garfield Weston Foundation has maintained a family tradition of supporting charitable organizations across Canada. Today the Foundation directs the majority of its funds to projects in the fields of land conservation, education, and science in Canada’s North.

Loyalist College prepares students for a rewarding career by combining rigorous academic standards with hands-on training from industry experts. Programs range from apprenticeships and certificates to diplomas and post-graduate studies. Loyalist offers more than 60 full-time programs and 77 university transfer agreements around the world. The best testament to the College’s value is from students, 97 percent of whom say they would recommend Loyalist to a friend. Loyalist is committed to helping students find great jobs, as well as supporting and enhancing the economic and social development of all individuals in its communities.
