Bursary Program

Every year, we receive designated donations specific for bursaries, which are awarded to people living with epilepsy in BC who are entering or who are in a vocational, arts, technical or an academic post secondary program. 

Bursaries are awarded on-the-basis of building achievements and can be applied towards tuition, books, housing, or other academic expenses.

To be eligible, a student must:

  • Financial need
  • Have a history of epilepsy
  • Be 16 years or older
  • Be Canadian citizen
  • Be current member of the BC Epilepsy Society (you can become a member of the BC Epilepsy Society by clicking here)

We offer five bursaries of $500 each every year.

Thank you for your interest in our bursary program. The 2021 deadline for bursaries has passed.
