$235,000 in bursaries was awarded to 221 recipients in 2017!
We are excited to announce that the Bursary Application Process will now be open from March 1, 2018 to September 15, 2018
The RNFBC raises money for bursaries for students who are enrolled in basic, post-basic, re-entry and graduate education programs in nursing. Unfortunately, at this time our bursary program does not include applications for speciality courses due to the overwhelming need for bursaries awarded to students in degree progams at acredited colleges and universities in BC and at out-of-province institutions.
We are pleased to advise the 2018 application timeline has been extended and will be open from March 1, 2018 to September 15, 2018. What this means to you is that as long as you have confirmed enrollment in any term in 2018, you may apply. Previously it was restricted to just enrollment in the Fall term.
Please remember that each year is treated on an individual basis so even if you have applied for and/or received a bursary in previous years, do not let that deter you from making a new application in 2018.
What 2018 Bursaries Can I Apply For?
Our bursaries are divided into those available to Student Nurses or Registered Nurses or both and some have specific eligibility requirements while others have no specific requirements other than the basic criteria for all applications. Please take a few minutes to review them all.
CATEGORIES OF BURSARIES
1. Bursaries for Student Nurses (SN) and Registered Nurse Re-Entry Education Programs (SN)
2. Bursaries for Registered Nurses (RN)
Please note that there are general qualification bursaries in each category and then there are others you may be eligible for that have specific requirements to qualify. Before ticking the box related to any of those specific requirement bursaries on your application, carefully read the requirements and DO NOT APPLY unless you qualify and provide the requested backup documentation as it will probably result in your application being disqualified.
1. Applicants must be residents of British Columbia.
2. Applicants must be Canadian citizens or permanent residents.
3. Applicants must meet the specific eligibility requirements listed under each category.
4. Applicants must have confirmed enrollment in any term with the 2018 calendar year and provide documentation to confirm.

Application Cycle + Process
The On-Line application process is now open from March 1, 2018 to September 15, 2018.
The 5 Step Application Process
- First, read the posted Information Package CAREFULLY to determine which bursaries you are qualified to apply for. This information can also be found here on our website.
- Gather together all the documentation you will be required to submit…please ensure that everything is in the format requested on the application form. Failure to submit your documentation in the correct format could result in your application being disqualified.
- Then complete the On-Line application form that is applicable to you – there are two different forms, one for Student Nurses (SN) and the other for licensed Registered Nurses (RN). Please make sure that all required information is completed and attach ALL required documentation in the required format. Mailed or faxed applications will not be accepted. You must go through the On-Line application process.
- There is a $25 application fee and this may be paid either cheque or you can pay On-Line via PayPal. If someone else is paying your application fee, please make sure that they identify you as the applicant on the cheque i.e. “Application fee for Mary Smith”.
- Bursary winners will be selected in October and you will notified by email if you have been awarded a bursary. You will then receive your cheque/award letter/tax receipt by mid-December. We are sorry but only the winners will contacted.
NB: We cannot stress enough that it is your responsibility to ensure that the application form is submitted correctly. Approximately 25% of applications are rejected each year because of the following reasons:
- The application form is not properly completed;
- The documentation is incomplete or illegible or not in the correct format;
- Application is made for bursaries that have specific eligibility requirements but the applicant does not meet the criteria or fails to provide the requested back up documents;
- The application fee is not paid or cannot be processed.
FAQ’s (Click “+” to expand for answers)
Can I apply for more than one bursary?
Yes you can. All applicants are eligible for any of the bursaries without specific qualifications in their particular category but if you applying to a bursary that does have requirements such as being a direct descendant or practicing in a particular area of expertise in order to be eligible, proof documentation MUST be supplied to be considered.
Review the criteria for each bursary and in particular those with specific criteria requirements and if you don’t meet those requirements, you will not be eligible. Then, tick off all boxes beside all the bursaries for which you are eligible, and submit ONE application and ONE set of documentation ONLY.
What are the amounts of bursary awards?
The bursary awards vary each year but generally range from $1000 – $1200.
Can I apply for a bursary, if I am studying outside BC?
Yes, but only if you can provide documentation that you are a permanent resident of BC, i.e. a copy of your BC driver’s licence, BCID card or a utility bill. If you are already an RN or RPN, you must include proof of current CRNBC or CRPNBC registration.
How are winners selected?
The Bursary Committee selects a winner from the eligible pool of applicants for each bursary by random draw in October each year.
Are bursaries based on financial need?
No, we believe that all applicants, by applying, have identified a financial need in their pursuit of higher education. Each applicant must meet the basic criteria as identified in the Information Package and meet the additional criteria for specific bursaries as identified on the appropriate Application Form.
What is expected of me should I be awarded a Bursary?
One thing and one thing only….our RNFBC bursaries have been set up to help you with your nursing education and are a ‘gift’ and as with all gifts, you say thank you. It is our expectation that upon receiving your bursary that you will take a little time to write a thank you to your donor letting them know just how their assistance will make a difference for you. All your donor’s information will be included in your award letter. So simply address your thank you to your donor and forward it on to RNFBC and we will be pleased to pass it on.
How much is the Application Fee?
Your application fee is $25 and can be paid two ways….PayPal (on-line) and Cheques (by mail). Cheques should be made payable to RNFBC and mailed to Registered Nurses Foundation of BC, 100 – 1450 Creekside Drive, Vancouver, BC V6J 5B3 and postmarked no later than September 15, 2018. Cheques received after the deadline will not be cashed and your application will be disqualified.
IMPORTANT: If the payment cheque is being made for you by another person, please ensure your full name is noted on the cheque. You will be prompted during the application process to indicate your payment choice but please note you will not be given a choice after September 12 – payment must be made through PayPal.
What documentation will be accepted as proof of BC residency?
To be eligible to apply, you must be a resident of BC for 12 months or more. Proof of that residency can include copies of a valid BC Drivers Licence, BCID card, a recent utility bill, correspondence from CRA or bank with your present address. Passport copies will not be accepted.
Who is the signing officer?
Someone from either the Registrars’ office or Administration who will sign their name to a letter confirming you are a student in their school’s Nursing program and you will be attending school either full or part time during the 2018 school year. Usually you can request a form letter from your school admission office with all of this information.
What do I have to submit as proof of enrollment?
Print out and scan a copy of your current transcript and class schedule. It will have to have your name student number and current address on it as well as the program of study. Please note that your initial acceptance letter will not be accepted if you are a second year + student.
For first year students, please provide a copy of your acceptance letter along with your class schedule.
My semesters are labeled as blocks or levels, how does this correspond with posted bursary dates?
Students are required to confirm using the above methods, i.e. letter form the admissions office or official transcript that they are currently attending classes during the bursary year. RNFBC cannot confirm that a specific level or block is eligible as each institution uses different labels for each of their semesters. As long as you are attending an accredited nursing school during 2018 you fall within the bursary year.
Will a letter of good standing be sufficient or do I require further documentation?
RNFBC requires proof of enrolment that includes your name, dates attending and program of study, usually letters of standing do not provide that. That proof must be signed by someone at the school who has the authority to confirm your information, someone from administration or the registrars’ office i.e. a signing officer.
Are bursaries retroactive, i.e. for courses already completed?
No, applicants must be attending the class or course within the academic year in which they are making their application and provide proof of registration.
Why do I have to give my Social Insurance Number?
Revenue Canada requires RNFBC to issue a T4A for your bursary award and to do so, your SIN is required. Failure to supply your SIN will result in your application being declined. You may rest assured that our website and records are secure.
What do I need to supply as proof of being a nursing graduates’ descendent?
A photocopy of the graduate’s degree and a record of your relationship including marriage and birth certificates if possible.
