UFV TRADES BURSARIES

If you can show genuine financial need, you may qualify for a non-repayable grant, called a bursary.

To apply for a bursary, you must:

  • Demonstrate genuine financial need
  • Be enrolled in a UFV program 
  • Show satisfactory academic achievement (2.0 GPA or better)
  • Meet the criteria outlined in the bursary description
  • Provide any required documentation with your bursary application
  • Be a government citizen or landed immigrant

First consideration is given to students who have exhausted all other types of funding (i.e., government  financial aid programs).  Students who have not accessed government funding may receive bursaries based on the availability of funds.

APPLY EARLY:  Bursary funds are limited. 

When can I apply?

Applications for Trades bursaries are accepted between September 15 to June 30. Expect to receive notification four to five weeks after you submit your application.

Where can I apply?

Applications for UFV bursaries are available through MyUFV. Log in and click on Student Information. Find the tab for Financial Aid and submit your application.

Bursaries may be subject to change.

RACHEL BARSKY MEMORIAL ANNUAL BURSARY

At age 14, Rachel Barsky slipped away from us in the night, succumbing to severe childhood asthma. An avid reader, her interests were beginning to turn to hair ribbons, nail polish, and boys. Nonetheless, her focus, disciplined study habits, and intelligence ensured her academic success, despite missing many days of school due to illness. With a penchant for languages and aspirations to become an interpreter, Rachel doubtless would have been a university scholar.

A diminutive but spunky girl, she loved her dog, skiing, and ice cream that would make her ill. Rachel surrounded herself with two motifs. One came from nature; one from fable. One symbolized dreams; one denoted magic. Rachel no doubt had dreams. She could have profited from a little magic. Rachel loved rainbows and unicorns.

Shy, yet passionate, Rachel possessed artistic talent, mastering a challenging musical instrument. She played the harp. Perhaps she still is.

AMOUNT: $500

AVAILABLE TO: A first year student enrolled in one of the following faculty/programs:

  • Upgrading and University Preparation;
  • Faculty of Applied and Technical Studies;
  • Faculty of Health Sciences;
  • Faculty of Professional Studies;
  • Faculty of Science

Applicants must demonstrate genuine financial need, have a minimum 2.0 GPA, be a Canadian citizen who lives in the UFV's Fraser Valley region. Preference will be given to a student who is the first in their family to attend university.
