I was really stressed about my financial situation… The bursary had an incredibly positive impact on my life. I know people down the road will be in the same situation as me, so I want to thank the donors for all they’re doing.
– Jordan Snyder, Forestry & Natural Areas Management student

In the beginning, I was scared to move from Brazil to Canada to study. Everyone said BCIT is a hard school… Then when I heard I received an award, I couldn’t believe it. Here, people really see your effort.
– Mariana Simoes, Business Management grad

Establish a student 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 awards@bcit.ca 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.
