Working your way back to school, Scholarships & Bursaries


Education is the best road to improving your life and the lives of your children.  Mt. Seymour Lions Housing encourage all tenants and family members to consider refreshing basic skills, upgrading to a new level, or taking on a whole new career while living in our community.

In partnership with the Minerva Foundation for BC Women and a generous donor, Thomas Kinloch, BC Housing’s Education Awards Program has a new award: the Kinloch Education Award for Women. Awards valued at $1000 will be given to deserving women living in subsidized housing each year for the next five years.

The purpose of the award is to assist eligible women in pursuing post-secondary education. Priority will be given to women who have overcome significant barriers in their lives which may have hindered their educational opportunities. This includes:

*Women who have experienced violence and/or abusive relationships;
*Single mothers advancing their education;
*Mature women seeking retraining to return to the workforce after a long absence;
*Women in pursuit of non-traditional fields of study; and,
*Women with disabilities.

Remember to let your Lions Administrator know you or your adult children have registered for school.

Best of Luck!
