    Other Scholarship Resources to search through for money:

  • Student Aid (Student Loans)

  • Most post-secondary programs and courses have tuition or fees associated with them. Additional education expenses can also include textbooks, stationery supplies, uniforms or specialized tools. You will need to plan and budget to afford these costs. Most students use employment income, savings, assets and support from family members to pay for their post-secondary education. Additional options include grants, loans and awards like scholarships or bursaries.

    StudentAid BC is able to help you navigate funding options and build a plan to finance your education.
