Bronwyn received a cheque in the amount of $1,000 and a copy of the legacy book At Home in Tay Valley.

This scholarship is a concrete way to underscore the importance of understanding history in contemporary society. It is awarded every year to a student graduating from the Perth and District Collegiate Institute or St. John Catholic High School who has been accepted into a post-secondary program and who has demonstrated a keen interest in history.

Funds for this scholarship come from the ongoing sales of At Home in Tay Valley and donations from local businesses, community groups and individuals. The scholarship fund is managed by the Perth and District Community Foundation, on behalf of Tay Valley Township.
