West Coast Area Bursaries and Awards

You might be aware that Girl Guides of Canada offers scholarships, bursaries, and awards to its members. It is also important to remember that these awards are not only available at the national level, but also at the provincial and area level.

West Coast Area offers bursaries and awards to both girl and adult members — you don’t have to be in grade 12 to apply! Girls are young as Brownies may be eligible for some of these awards. Check out the youth awards flyer for Education Bursaries, Music Scholarships, and Performing Arts Scholarships here.

Area CrestInformation about additional West Coast Area awards including scholarships for girls in grade 12 and for adult members, see the Area awards page here. Many awards have deadlines in March and April so apply soon so as not to miss out.
