Fritz Pfeiffer Adult Learning Awards

The Fritz Pfeiffer Adult Learning Awards are for adults planning post-secondary education. They are based on achievements, volunteer work, community and leadership activities. They are named for the Telkwa gentleman who donated funds for these awards. Mr Pfeiffer was particularly interested in supporting students in areas of study related to forestry, banking and trades, however all areas of study will be considered.
