ECEBC is pleased to announce that the ECE Student Bursary Program will run for the Winter 2015 semester (January to April 2015). Bursary applications will be available for download at www.ecebc.ca on Thursday, January 22, 2015.
During the summer of 2014, the Early Childhood Educators of BC received funding from the Ministry of Children and Family Development to establish a bursary fund for students enrolled in early childhood educational programs. To respond to identified needs, priority will be given to:
• Aboriginal students,
• Students attending early childhood educational programs with an Aboriginal focus, and
• Students working to achieve an infant/toddler educator designation.
All students registered for ECE courses during the Winter 2015 semester (January to April 2015) at an approved training institution are encouraged to apply.Students will be able to apply for up to $300 per course, to a maximum of $1,500 per semester.
Eligible applicants must be enrolled at an approved educational institution in an ECE program, with priority given to Aboriginal students, or students enrolled in ECE programs with an Aboriginal focus or working to achieve an infant/toddler educator designation.
To determine if the post-secondary institution you are or will be attending is an approved educational institution, please view the Ministry of Children and Family Development's list at:
