2018 BC Bursaries, Grants and Scholarships - Adults and Girls



Each year BC Girl Guides’ scholarship program recognizes our members' many achievements by supporting their educational goals and diverse career paths. Scholarships are open to adult members who are pursuing post-secondary education at a recognized college, university or trades program.

BC Council seeks to support members in their educational endeavours, no matter the career. Guiding involvement and participation are important criteria in the awarding of BC Girl Guides Bursaries, Grants and Scholarships.

If you have additional questions please email bc-awards@girlguides.ca.
