The scholarships will be awarded to the recipients during Christmas events organized by the CSL Branches in their own Slovak communities. These celebrations provide an opportunity for the Branch Executive Officers and members to show their pride and express their support for the accomplishments achieved by these students.
In closing, I would like to congratulate the scholarship winners on reaching this significant milestone in their academic careers. Best wishes to them and all Slovak Canadian students for continued success in their future endeavours. Bravo!
