$120,000 awarded to 24 Camosun students in Ike Barber Transfer Scholarships
VICTORIA, BC—Twenty-four deserving Camosun College students have just learned they will each receive a $5,000 Ike Barber Transfer Scholarship recognizing excellence in academic achievement and community service.
The Irving K. Barber Scholarship Society, named for the BC philanthropist and founder of Slocan Forest Products Ltd., encourages students to start their post-secondary studies at a local public institution like Camosun College, then transfer to a degree-granting institution in BC to complete their four-year bachelor degree.
"On behalf of Camosun College, I am delighted to congratulate the 2015 scholarship recipients," says President Sherri Bell. "Their success speaks to the exceptional value of a Camosun education: excellent instructors, an engaging learning environment, close to home."
