The Graham Pinsent Memorial Bursary is a 500$ bursary given to an LGBTQ youth who is 25 or under, has been accepted to or currently attending post-secondary education, and demonstrates financial need.
Graham was an active member of The Youth Project of Nova Scotia. He was known and loved by many and was always willing to lend a hand, especially to the YP. Over the many years of service, he helped organize social events, fundraise, or even take the time to drive a VW Beetle for Halifax Pride. Throughout Graham’s busy schedule and illness, he worked hard to finish his high school education.
It was felt by many that a memorial bursary to help other LGBTQ youth in their pursuit of higher education was a fitting way to personify Graham in his struggle to complete his education, as well as the spirit he left to the Youth Project. We miss him every day.
APPLY! Deadline is May 1st of each year.
