The Member Education Bursary is open to all active members including employed student nurses.
Members must approach their employer first to seek other funding. If the course is a job requirement your employer must pay the costs (see your PCA Article 35 or Public Service Master Agreement Article 23.01).
The maximum award will be based on the funds available.
Applications open in early January of each year. There are two deadlines per year: April 15 and September 15.
The BCNU Bursary Committee reviews applications each May and October to determine eligibility and approve/deny requests. Decisions of the Committee are final.
Preference will be given to first time applicants. If you have applied for and received funding from this bursary in the past, you are not eligible to apply again.
Approval letters will be sent by email in mid-May and mid-October, after each respective application deadline. Please ensure you check your junk mail folders as well.
