Annual awards program

BCIT and the Alumni Association recognize student excellence through the annual awards program. We appreciate the generosity of our donors in providing financial support and recognition to students.

The BCIT Alumni Association Scholarship and Bursary Endowed Fund was established in 1986 to help BCIT attract and retain the best students. Through generous support of our alumni, this fund has grown to over $1 million and is the largest endowment at BCIT.

By supporting BCIT, alumni annually build this fund for the benefit of BCIT students and campus projects. Since the fund was established, 885 BCIT students have benefitted from the awards, receiving a total of $1,021,056. Each year, the invested principal generates interest to provide the following student awards:
