About

The intention of our scholarships is to provide funding that will assist in covering costs of tuition and/or costs directly related to the post secondary programs.

The Howard Legacy Youth Fund was established with a donation from Peggy Howard in 2012, and is made available to applicants who are current or former youth in care.

AFABC Youth Bursary was established in 2014, with funding from the Adoptive Families Association of BC, and accepts applications from youth who have joined their family by legal adoption.
