BC Aviation Council (BCAC) Scholarship Applications open annually on January 15th. Applications must be made using the online form and reach our office no later than midnight April 30th.
BCAC members recognize the financial pressures faced by students pursuing studies in aviation and aerospace and are pleased to provide over $70,000 worth of scholarships on an annual basis. With the critical shortage of human resources faced by our industry – even before the COVID pandemic – and the need to support industry-wide recovery efforts, a focus on scholarships is a key priority of the BCAC.
Students can apply for cash awards ranging from $1,000 to $8,000. However, these awards are about much more than just the cash. Winning any scholarship looks great on your resumé, especially because the BCAC Scholarship Committee consists of dedicated industry leaders and their review is extremely thorough. Reference letters and a complete application are particularly important to the Scholarship Committee; explaining why you require financial assistance is also important. Applications are treated in the strictest of confidence.
General criteria for each scholarship are listed below, with any additional required details listed with individual scholarships.
You must fill out the online form (also below) and select the scholarship(s) you are applying for. More than one scholarship can be selected.
There are four general scholarship categories – Pilots, Aircraft Maintenance Engineers (AMEs), Airport Operations and Management, and General. In your application, please specify which category/categories you have chosen.
Results of each year’s submissions are announced before the end of September and are awarded at the Silver Wings Scholarship and Industry Awards Celebration in October at the Vancouver Convention Centre West. Join your aviation and aerospace colleagues at this fun, networking gala. Check out this year’s scholarship winners!
