Since 1982, CMHA BC has been helping people with mental illness further their pursuit of post-secondary education through our scholarship and bursary programs.
Several scholarships and bursaries are available each year to BC adults, 20 years of age or older, who are living with a mental illness or addiction:
- Lorne Fraser Scholarship for Mental Health Promotion
Scholarships worth $1000 and $2000 are available to two post-secondary students entering the second, third or fourth year of their program whose education and career goals are related to mental health promotion
- Lorne Fraser Educational Bursary
Several $700 bursaries are available to students for the tuition costs of a post-secondary education at an accredited BC institution
- LGM Continuous Learning Bursary
A bursary worth $800 is offered for a distance learning course at Athabasca University
Apply for the LGM Continuous Learning Bursary online. Application deadline: August 31, 2016
The application period is usually between May to June each year. Applicants can apply for either a bursary or a scholarship each year. An applicant may win a bursary or scholarship more than once, but will not be eligible to win an award two years in a row.
Through the Lorne Fraser Educational Fund, we’ve helped more than 150 British Columbians pursue their educational dreams.
“I cannot begin to thank Lorne Fraser and CMHA BC for selecting me as one of the Lorne Fraser award recipients. I was planning to take a hiatus from studies because I could not afford the tuition for fall and was very saddened by the situation. I cannot begin to find adequate words to elucidate the relief I felt after receiving your email and realizing I can indeed continue with my studies and portfolio … I am so happy you are supporting me on my journey to contribute to society on many levels.” – Bursary Recipient
With your help we can offer even more scholarships and bursaries each year. Please donate.
