The Josie Matteis Doto Bursary for Nonprofit Management is awarded annually to a deserving student entering program at a College or University in the field of Community Studies, Liberal Arts, Arts and Humanities, Social Science, Leadership and Social Change, Social Work or Behavioural and Social Sciences.

This award is valued at $1,000.00 for the 2019/2020 academic year. Only one bursary will be awarded. 


General Eligibility Criteria
• Canadian citizen, permanent resident or protected person
• Pursuing post-secondary studies for the first time
• Demonstrate academic promise, leadership and participation in extra-curricular   secondary school activities, community service and/or volunteer work.

Inspired by Matteis’s volunteer work with the local United Way, the bursary was established to honour the memory of the Chatham-Kent native who passed away in 2015. Matteis is remembered as someone who was selflessly dedicated to helping those in need in our community.

Her family members and the Chatham-Kent Nonprofit Network are proud to offer this bursary for nonprofit management to someone who has a similar passion and commitment to helping to build a stronger and better community for all of us.
