The technology-sector can only be as successful when it possesses the right mix of talent development and skilled worker attraction. The BCTIA acknowledged this need in 2005 and responded by establishing The BC Technology Scholarship Fund.
This industry-funded program provides non-repayable grants to students who have a proven passion for technology that are studying in a variety of traditional technical fields such as engineering or computer science and in non-traditional fields such as marketing, sales, and product development and project management.
For 2011 the BC Technology Scholarship Fund will award two $5,000 grants to deserving University or College Students and six $1,000 grants to Grade 12 Graduates.
To learn more about the application criteria and to apply before Apirl 8th, visit www.bctia.org/scholarship. Grant recipients will be advised in May with formal presentations to take place at the BCTIA Technology Impact Awards on June 9th.
