Public Guardian and Trustee Educational Assistance Fund Bursary
Public Guardian and Trustee Educational Assistance Fund bursaries are awarded annually in consultation with the Ministry of Children and Family Development from a limited fund to high school graduates who are 19 years old or over and pursuing a post-secondary academic, technical or vocational program.
These bursaries are only available to former permanent wards of the Ministry of Social Services and those formerly in continuing custody of the Ministry of Children and Family Development of the Province of British Columbia. These bursaries assist recipients to further their academic or vocational goals by supplementing existing funding to cover shortfalls which otherwise might cause the individual to terminate their studies prematurely.
The application deadline each year is April 15.
