Giving to BCIT


You can help students like Nahian create a brighter future

This holiday season, give to the BCIT Student Emergency Response Fund to help more BCIT students realize their dreams. You’ll be supporting students like Nahian, who immigrated to Canada to create a brighter future for his young family. The generosity of donors like you provided Nahian with a much-needed lifeline, helping him make ends meet as he studied to launch a new career in information technology.

“You have my heartfelt gratitude. You’re allowing me to complete my studies with less stress. Once I am successful in my career, I will give back to my community, remembering what I have received.”

We’re excited to share that, thanks to a generous $20,000 match gift, for every $1 raised in support of the Student Emergency Response Fund, a matching $1 will be given until December 31, 2021!

Establish a student scholarship, bursary, or award

The generous donors behind BCIT’s awards are the key to the success of BCIT and its students. The cost of education today makes it harder than ever for students to balance their studies and pay bills. These awards can often make the difference in a student being able to complete their studies.

Endowed awards
Endowments create a lasting legacy at BCIT by providing a permanent source of funding for scholarship, bursaries or awards. Endowments can be created to support students in specific programs or BCIT can direct the funds to program areas of greatest need. Once established, contributions can be made to the endowment from industry partners, family, or friends.

An endowment is a permanent fund supporting awards. The Endowment must generate the minimum award amount. Please contact for more information.

Annual awards

Annual gifts support student awards, scholarships or bursaries. Annual contributions may be designated to support students in specific programs or BCIT can direct the funds to program areas of greatest need.
