Scholarship applications are open until June 1st each year. 


Scholarships and bursaries can only be paid to an educational institution (CRA restrictions), so planning ahead is a must.


DVCF is only able to pay funds to registered learning institutions.


Include your registration timeline in your application, so if you are awarded funds we can ensure timely payment of your tuition.
