Coast Mountain College has introduced an new, one of a kind scholarship, that will soon be available for students in the Pre Engineering and Geoscience programs, the goal one to train and hopefully retain professionals in the field in the Northwest upon graduation.

The Focus for the Scholarship opportunity is to recruit more Indigenous and Women engineers and geoscientists to study and work in the Northwest, the criteria for application for the Scholarship program is open to Anyone from Northern BC.

“It’s a good opportunity to get rural, remote and Indigenous engagement, because typically, engineering and geoscience programs are limited to people who can travel to the bigger centres," -- Coast Mountain College geoscience and math instructor Stuart Toop

The initiative is being led in part by the Coast Mountain College Geoscience program along with the Engineers and Geoscientists BC northern Branch.

Fundraising for the scholarship is being facilitated in part by the Coast Mountain College Foundation, which was established in 2017 to support student success by easing financial barriers through scholarships, bursaries, awards and programs.

If you want to get behind the initiative, you can make your donation through their online portal here.
