For the first time in its 60 year history, the White Rock/Surrey University Women's Club has broadened its mandate. Not only is financial assistance available to women pursuing a university degree, but also to those in other post-secondary fields: diploma programs, the trades, and technology.
Surrey, White Rock, and Langley women, who are Canadian citizens or permanent residents, are eligible to apply for bursaries of $3,000 for the 2017-2018 school year. The purpose of these bursaries is to assist women to further their education in an increasingly competitive workplace.
Application deadline is April 28, 2017
