BC Hydro is proud to support education and skill development in B.C.’s Aboriginal communities. We are committed to developing a diverse and inclusive workforce which is representative of the communities we serve.
Aboriginal scholarships are awarded to selected B.C. Aboriginal students currently enrolled in a full-time post-secondary institution or students in Grade 12 planning to pursue a full-time public post-secondary education within Canada. BC Hydro offers the following scholarships:
- Eight $1,500 aboriginal scholarships, available to individuals who are status/non status Indians, Inuit or Métis and are residents of B.C. who plan to enrol in a full-time public post-secondary institution in Canada. Students pursuing an education in technology or engineering will be considered priority applicants, however general admission students are encouraged to apply.
- One $2,000 Randy Brant Memorial scholarship based on a combination of academic achievement and outstanding community involvement.
In order to provide opportunities to more British Columbians, you can only receive an award once. BC Hydro’s Aboriginal Scholarship applications are available on their website each year from January to mid-April and the scholarships are awarded in the summer months.
