Awards & Bursaries

We know education is important. That is why we provide awards and other fundings for students.

Awards & Bursaries

Laurie Jack

Laurie Jack was President of the BCITSA from 1971-1972. Tragically, he died in an airplane crash in 1975. Together, his parents and the BCITSA have sponsored two annual awards of $500 in his honor. These awards are given to two students in their graduating year who have contributed to student life at BCIT, and who have been nominated by another BCIT community member (staff, faculty or student).

The Distinguished Representative Award

Classroom representatives are eligible to apply for the Distinguished Representative Award. The award will be given to a deserving representative that has gone above and beyond their duties. Each School will give out one award of $500 per year to selected representatives.

The BCITSA, as a registered charity, can accept donations (either cash or gifts-in-kind) from individuals and/or companies. We are always looking for prizing and giveaways at our events. Additionally, the BCITSA works on a number of initiatives that help us invest in our student members annually.

The Silver Pen Award

The Silver Pen award is presented to an outstanding Link student newspaper staff member or volunteer. Award recipients are chosen annually based on their excellence in journalism and leadership.

BCITSA Donations Policy governs the solicitation, acceptance and stewardship of all donations to BCITSA and BCITSA Student Clubs. Its purpose is to ensure that all facets of BCITSA remain compliant with the Income Tax Act and Revenue Canada-established practices and standards.
