Student Bursaries
We are pleased to provide bursaries to benefit post secondary students related to members of emergency service organizations.   The primary awards have been established in the name of Michael Crowe and the Volunteer Firefighter Association of BC (VFABC).  They have been funded in perpetuity and are in place with the British Columbia Institute of Technology (BCIT) and the University of Victoria (UVic).  A separate annual award for students outside of BC, in the name of Provident, will be funded annually.  All awards will be based on financial need and reasonable academic standing.

The BCIT Student Financial Aid and Awards Office, and the Student Awards and Financial Aid Office at the University of Victoria, will administer the awards in accordance with their policies and procedures.  Similarly Provident will manage the bursary in its name.

Our experience is that emergency service workers are civic minded community spirited individuals who often train for many hours.  They are called upon to serve under duress, in extreme circumstances, for the benefit of their fellow citizens. We actively support these individuals and their families.  Our goal in establishing these awards is to recognize and benefit students in honour of our “local heroes”.

Current award amounts average in excess of $600. Below are links for application forms:
