About the Amber Bowerman and the Amber Bowerman Foundation

amber bowermanThe Amber Webb-Bowerman Memorial Foundation (AWBMF) was established in the summer of 2008 to honour and preserve the memory of journalist Amber Michelle Bowerman (nee Webb), and to help fulfill her dreams by supporting emerging artists and journalists. Dedicated to quality in writing, reporting and the arts, Amber encouraged and supported young journalists and artists similarly committed to their own careers. By providing scholarships, bursaries and awards, the Foundation aims to foster the achievement of excellence, and to broaden scholastic opportunities for emerging Western Canadian journalists and artists of all disciplines. The AWBMF provides a program of annual scholarships. Recipients are selected by the individual post-secondary institutions on the basis of both scholastic merit and financial need. Currently the foundation offers scholarships at SAIT Polytechnic, Grant MacEwan University, the University of Regina and Mount Royal University. See more at: amberbowerman.ca.
