Applying for Scholarships, Bursaries, & Awards

The Quesnel Community Foundation exists to meet the needs of our community through the growth and management of the permanent Endowment Fund that now totals just over $4 million.

Scholarships, Bursaries, and Awards provide a direct investment in our community’s future and demonstrate our ongoing commitment to the youth and students in Quesnel.  The Quesnel Community Foundation values education and are proud to support students and help them in achieving their academic and vocational goals.

The Quesnel Community Foundation’s 2024 Scholarship, Bursary, & Award’s Cycle is open!

As these Funds are typically created in Memorial of someone, there are often some different eligibility requirements for each application that are identified by family members or loved ones as exemplifying that person’s passions and values. Please ensure that you read the criteria thoroughly before applying.

  • Applicants must be Quesnel and area residents, with some awards, mature Quesnel students eligible to apply.
  • All applications must include a Cover Letter
