The VGHSON Alumnae Education Committee is pleased to announce exciting changes to the Bursary Award Program for 2022.

The VGHSON Alumnae Education Committee would like to remind members of
important changes in the Bursary Award Program.
Descendants of VGH/SON or UBC/VGH Collaborative Program Grads are eligible to apply
for bursaries. (this was established in 2021)
Required proof will be a photocopy of the graduate’s diploma and/or a letter of
explanation including the relationship to the graduate.
With thanks to the overwhelming generosity of Alumnae members our funds have
increased, and we are now able to offer larger bursaries depending on the category.
