BC Social Studies Teachers Association
Major Conference Bursary Program
The BCSSTA is pleased to announce the establishment of a new bursary program to support the professional development of our members.
The major conference bursary is designed to provide financial support to members who would like to attend major conferences in the field of Social Studies Education, but who cannot fully fund the trip through school or district funds.
Six bursaries of $500 each will be awarded for 2020/2021 conferences.
Bursary applications will be reviewed considering the following criteria:
– Trips chaperoning students are not eligible for this program
The selection committee may, where appropriate, award more than six bursaries at a lower amount or award similar quality applications by a random draw.
To apply, please fill out the application form below
Applications for the 2020/2021 program are due MARCH 31st 2021, and will be awarded by the end of April 2021. Bursaries will be distributed upon receipt of proof of registration and receipts for conference expenses.
All receipts & proof of registration must be submitted by JUNE 1st or the bursary will be forfeited.
