Engineering scholarships

Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of British Columbia offering financial support to deserving students.

Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of British Columbia’s (APEGBC) non-profit entity, the APEG Foundation, regularly provides financial aid to B.C. students through the granting of bursaries and scholarships.

Current scholarships and bursaries available include:

• The Frank Baumann Bursary, valued at $1,500, is offered to a deserving B.C. student enrolled in an engineering or geoscience program who is pursuing studies in the area of geohazards.

• The Sheri Plewes Scholarship, valued at $2,000, is offered to a woman in full-time undergraduate engineering studies in an accredited engineering program at a B.C. university.

• Student Member Scholarships, valued at $1,000, are offered to all APEGBC student members.

• BC Hydro/APEGBC Scholarships, valued at $1,500, are offered to fourth-year engineering and geoscience students.

APEGBC is the licensing and regulatory body responsible for B.C.’s professional engineers and geoscientists.

The bursaries and scholarships are offered to students who have demonstrated remarkable achievements in the areas of academics, volunteerism and extra-curricular activities, allowing them to focus on studies rather than the financial cost of education.
