Financial Need Bursaries - Career Programs (343)

This fund includes various bursaries to help close the gap of student financial need. Bursaries included are the Finish Line Fund, Return to Learning Fund, and other financial need/emergency bursaries.

Finish Line Funds:
Any learner facing a financial or academic challenge, this fund will assist you to get through and cross the “finish line” because we know you are on your way to a successful completion of your educational program. The Finish Line Fund is funded through the generosity of the following donors who believe in the power of education and opportunity: Don and Marlene Campbell, Bill and Gloria Kaufman, Students’ Association of Bow Valley College and Anonymous Donors.

Financial Need Bursaries:

While we see an increase in learner enrolment and no additional funding increases from the government, retention efforts from the very beginning will be necessary in contributing to learner persistence.  The Financial need bursaries would answer to learners’ unexpected or temporary financial barriers which otherwise would lead to early withdrawals or registration cancellations.  The goal is to boost persistence in continuing their studies.
