The scholarship program is a joint initiative of WorkSafeBC and PCU-WHS.
Each successful candidate will be entitled to $6,000 annually for each of two years to cover most of the course tuition for the specialized courses required to complete the Bachelor of Disability Management (BDM) degree.
Preference will be given to candidates who have completed at least 60 transferable academic credits from a recognized post-secondary institution.
The scholarship program duration is 2 years and recipients are expected to graduate within that time frame.
The percentage to which the $6,000 annual scholarship will cover actual tuition costs will be contingent on the number of transfer credits with which prospective students will enter the degree program.
