The NIC Foundation is making 350 awards of up to $3,000 each available in 2016 to help new, continuing and graduating students achieve their academic and career goals. With one online application, students could be eligible for awards based on their academic performance, financial need, career interests or community involvement.

“When we support the dreams of our students, we give them a chance to build a solid future for themselves and their families,” said Robert Buckley, NIC Foundation board chair and donor. “In turn, they become our nurses, accountants, teachers, electricians, artists, local business owners and so on, supporting the strength and growth of our communities.”

The award application deadline is April 30. For an awards list and online application form visit www.nic.bc.ca/awards.

Workshops to assist applicants are being held at the Campbell River, Port Alberni and Comox Valley campuses.
