BCTIA Scholarship money up for grabs

Posted by Rob Lewis

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.
