I started The Holmes Foundation to stop shoddy work at its root and help skilled trades students get the education they need to become top professionals.

Every year, The Holmes Foundation awards up to twenty (20) $1,500 scholarships and bursaries to students enrolled (or enrolling) in a residential construction program at a Canadian college or university. Students are awarded based on academic excellence and their commitment to a career in residential construction or renovation.
Make It Right® Scholarship & Bursaries
2015 Scholarship and bursary recipents announced

Research shows that many students who enroll in college, including those enrolled in construction courses drop out before completing their training.

The Holmes Foundation's Make It Right® Scholarships and Bursaries are designed to encourage students in Canadian colleges and universities to complete their academic training.

We would like to congratulate all 2015 Make It Right® Scholarship and Bursary recipients, and thank everyone who applied. Next year's application forms will be posted soon!
