The Adoptive Families Association of BC is pleased to announce our 2019 Youth Bursary Applications are now live on our website! The intention of our $1,000 bursaries are to provide funding that will assist in covering costs of tuition and/or costs directly related to the post-secondary programs (vocational, trade or academic post-secondary program, at an accredited BC institution) for youth in/from foster care in BC, or who have been adopted.
The Howard Legacy Youth Fund was established with a donation from Peggy Howard in 2012, and is made available to applicants who are current or former youth in care.
The AFABC Youth Bursary was established in 2014, with funding from the Adoptive Families Association of BC, and accepts applications from youth who have joined their family by legal adoption.
For more information and to fill out an application, visit our bursaries webpage HERE.
Applications are due on Tuesday, April 30th, 2019.
