Each year, our Society awards scholarships to people with epilepsy in BC who are entering, or are in a post-secondary or employment training program. These scholarships can be applied towards tuition, books, on-campus housing, or other academic expenses. To be eligible, a student must be 16 years or older, a Canadian citizen or have landed immigrant status, under a physicians' care for epilepsy, and a current member of the BC Epilepsy Society. The scholarships are awarded on the basis of educational commitment, volunteer work, and other achievements or interests. We've awarded 60 scholarships since 2007.
