Each year the Niverville Chamber of Commerce recognizes a Niverville area student with a scholarship worth $1,000. The scholarship is publicized at the Niverville Collegiate Institute; however, any Grade 12 graduating student resident in Niverville can apply.

In 2017 applicants were required to write an essay of a minimum of 1,000 words covering the following points: 

  • what leadership means to them;
  • their volunteer activities;
  • the value of volunteerism to the community and themselves;
  • how their leadership roles and volunteer activities might prepare them for a career in business; and
  • why leadership skills are important in business.

The criteria may change each year. Information for the 2018 award will be available in February 2018 at which time interested students should contact the chamber.
