Students Scoop Millions in Scholarships

Many of our graduates are celebrating significant scholarship wins. Almost $6.8 million – and still counting – has been awarded to them so far.

From large to small, every dollar from scholarships helps students achieve their post-secondary dreams. Of special mention, Burnaby South Secondary student Susan Chung was awarded the prestigious Schulich Award, which comes with a whopping $80,000 UBC entrance scholarship. Twenty Burnaby Schools students were awarded the Beedie Luminaries Scholarship of up to $40,000 each for demonstrating both academic ability and sharing compelling stories of resilience. Byrne Creek student Arnauld Alandou was awarded a 2020 Cmolik Scholarship of up to $40,000 for demonstrating tenacity and academic ability while facing adversity.
