Bursary Requests 2024: Annual Training Forum

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

The bursary structure applies to current EVA BC Core Member Programs. The structure intends to support participants by 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. Please note that 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 of your organization 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.
