Applications are now open for a scholarship that enables adults with diverse abilities to pursue education, employment training or personal development.
Community Living British Columbia (CLBC) and the BC Government and Service Employees’ Union (BCGEU) co-sponsor the scholarship fund, established as part of their 2012 collective agreement.
The fund’s scope was developed based on feedback from self advocates, families, service providers and CLBC staff. Scholarships can be for any amount up to a maximum of $2,500 for:
- skills training related to securing employment opportunities
- training courses being offered by accredited B.C. institutions
- indirect costs associated with attending post-secondary education and training
- community recreation activities that promote quality of life and new skills
