The North Island College Foundation will award $265,000 in scholarships and bursaries to NIC students this spring, helping many more students achieve their academic and career goals.

The money represents a significant increase over last year and includes 20 new awards totalling more than $25,000.

“The North Island College Foundation scholarship and bursary program is growing consistently year over year,” says Bert Heeringa, NIC foundation board chair. “This tells us the generous people and businesses in our communities understand the value of investing in North Island College students.

“From electricians, welders and accountants to nurses, educational assistants and small business owners, NIC students are the foundation of our communities.”

NIC Foundation scholarships and bursaries are available to students attending North Island College for the first time in September 2014, and to continuing and graduating students.

The deadline for applying with your NIC student number is April 30.

For a full list of awards, pick up an awards booklet at the Student Services office at any NIC campus, community employment centre, or high school counselling office. Apply online or download the awards booklet at www.nic.bc.ca/awards.

For more information, questions or help applying, contact Erin Petersen at 250-334-5000, ext. 4039, or e-mail foundation@nic.bc.ca.
