The BC Professional Fire Fighters’ Burn Fund Bursaries were initiated by philanthropic families and individuals across BC to support the continued learning of the burn survivor community in British Columbia and Yukon. We are extremely grateful for the generosity from our donors that allows the bursary funds to continue year after year.
We encourage adult burn survivors and Burn Camp junior counsellors from BC and Yukon who are pursuing or continuing their post secondary education to apply to this year’s bursary program by Friday, July 30, 2021.
Each year, bursaries are presented to burn survivors from British Columbia who are continuing their post secondary education.
