Business Advisory Council Award of Distinction

Amount: Unknown
Deadline: Fall: August 15th – September 15th; Winter: January 1st – February 1st; Summer: May 1st – June 1st

About:The Business Advisory Council Bursary was established in 2006 to support students enrolled in the Opportunities Enabled Program (OEP). It was awarded annually to graduates who were continuing their post-secondary studies until cancellation of the OEP in 2008. Recognizing a need for assistance, the Business Advisory Council agreed to support Vocational Education and Skills Training, or VEST (formerly Adult Special Education), graduates who have barriers to education – diagnosed or undiagnosed. The purpose of this fund is to aid VEST graduates with the transition between school and employment by assisting with related costs, such as, work attire, transportation to interview sites, etc.
