As part of our founding values, Lake View Credit Union places great importance on the youth in our communities. It is with great pride that we offer our “Face of the Future” Bursary Program to the youth in Dawson Creek, Tumbler Ridge and Chetwynd. It is our sincere hope that this financial assistance will make a difference and that it will help deserving students reach their potential through post-secondary education.
Lake View Credit Union will provide financial assistance of one thousand ($1,000) dollars to five (5) bursary recipients. The five (5) bursaries will be awarded to students enrolled in a secondary school in the South Peace Region.
You will notice that we have preferred to refer to the funding as Bursaries rather than Scholarships. It is our understanding that “Scholarship” is purely academic, and thus a student’s academic performance is the sole factor in determining his/her success in winning an award (scholarship).
“Bursary” has an underlying understanding of academic success, but the financial needs of the individuals become more important in determining the successful candidate.
The Lake View Credit Union committee will determine the successful
candidates, rewarding committed students with the greatest needs.
Completed Bursary Applications must be hand-delivered to the applicant’s
home Branch of Lake View Credit Union. Lake View Credit Union will award
the Bursaries to the applicants at your School’s Award Ceremony.
In addition, Lake View Credit Union encourages all applicants to pursue further funding throught the Credit Unions of BC Bursary Program.
