Posted On May 11, 2022

The 2022 BC Hydro Indigenous Scholarships & Bursaries Program is accepting applications from April 1 – May 31, 2022 and we invite you to apply and share this opportunity with your networks. You can find program eligibility requirements, application forms and information on our website: https://www.bchydro.com/community/indigenous-relations/opportunities/individuals/donations_sponsorships.html

We are proud to support education and skill development in Indigenous communities. Our Indigenous scholarships and bursaries are available to Status, Non-Status, Mètis and Inuit students who are residents of B.C. and are enrolled in an accredited full-time post-secondary program in Canada. Students in Grade 12 planning to pursue a full-time, accredited post-secondary education within Canada are also eligible to apply.

We offer the following scholarships and bursaries:

Memorial Award

  • One Randy Brant Memorial Award in the amount of $8,000 will be awarded to our top applicant, based on a combination of academic achievement, community involvement, and pursuit of a BC Hydro career.

Scholarships

• Scholarships in the amount of $5000 are available to full-time students in degree, diploma, certificate, or technical/trades programs connected to BC Hydro careers.

Bursaries

• Bursaries in the amount of $2000 are available to part-time students in degree, diploma, certificate, or technical/trades programs connected to BC Hydro careers.

We're looking to invest in students who are in programs related to the work we do. The following is a list of programs we consider possible stepping stones to a future career with us. If you're in a program with a different name or focus but you think is relevant to the work we do, we encourage you to apply. All applications are reviewed and considered, however, priority is given to those pursuing programs that are linked to career opportunities at BC Hydro.
