The VEGA Scholarship was established by Helen Tkachenko, a retired school teacher and long-time volunteer at TWOSE. Helen endowed a fund to create the VEGA Scholarship in the late 1980’s and now this fund enables school children (ages 6 to 14), who have a keen interest in science, to attend a summer camp at TWOSE.

The VEGA Scholarship is awarded each year to children in Edmonton and surrounding areas.

Recipients of the VEGA Scholarship will receive a $299.25 ($285+GST) credit towards a 2017 Science or Computer Summer Camp at TWOSE. Applicants are eligible to receive one (1) scholarship.
