Bursary Requests 2023: Annual Training Forum

Please read the following information thoroughly to determine if you are eligible to apply for a bursary.

The bursary structure has been created for Core Member Programs by EVA BC for the purpose of covering partial travel costs and creating equitable access for programs across the province. The bursary amounts have been calculated based on the difference in travel costs in relation to program locations. The bursary applies to participants who would need to travel more than 65 km one way from their office location to the training forum’s venue and to account for overnight accommodations. 

The bursary opportunity is only available for Core Members. If you don’t know what your organization’s membership type is, please email us at programsupport@endingviolence.org and we can provide this information.

EVA BC provides one bursary per Core Member Program in your organization. We recognize that the bursary will not cover the full expense of your attendance to the Annual Training Forum, however we hope that this will allow a representative to come to the training forum and create networking opportunities for our sector.

Please connect with your supervisor to decide who from your organization’s program will apply, as only one bursary is available per program. Program Managers or Executive Directors who oversee these programs are included within this application.

If you are a presenter looking for travel subsidies, please reach out to the ATF team at atf@endingviolence.org.
