Youth Education Bursary
The Youth Education Bursary assists young people that are or have been in care and want to pursue a career in the field of Human Social Services. Bursaries support students with the financial costs of tuition, books, and supplies for post-secondary academic. Please give your support.
The Youth Education Bursary was established by Federation members in 2009 to encourage and support young people to develop a career in our sector. The bursary program supports young people 25 or younger who either are or have been in care and who want to pursue post-secondary education towards a career in human social services. Students are welcome to apply over multiple years as we share a long-term interest in their studies and development into social service professionals.
Since 2009, the bursary program has awarded $126,400 in bursaries to 166 recipients to help students with the financial costs of tuition, books, and supplies for post-secondary study (as of June 2015). See below for information about contributing to the Bursary Program.
Applications for the 2016 FCSSBC Youth Education Bursary are now closed.
If you have any questions about the bursary, please email us at email@example.com.
