The BC Aboriginal Student Award was established in 2008 as part of the Provincial Government's strategy to improve Aboriginal access and achievement. Its purpose is to support Aboriginal people in securing post-secondary education by reducing financial barriers.

BC Aboriginal Student Awards

The Society administers the program in partnership with the Victoria Foundation. Awards of $1,000 - $5,000 are available for Aboriginal people pursuing post-secondary education at BC public post-secondary institutions or Aboriginal-run institutions. Beginning in 2013, a special focus and additional funding will be made available for students pursuing Master's and Doctoral degrees. 

The Aboriginal Teacher Education Award supports Aboriginal students enrolled in a teacher education program at a public post-secondary in British Columbia. Awards are $5,000 annually for a maximum of four years.

2013 Application Deadline of Apr 5, 2013
