About ASTTBC Foundation

Since 1990, the ASTTBC Foundation has provided more than half a million dollars for post-secondary technology students and for Science, Technology, Engineering & Math (STEM) education activities in BC.

The ASTTBC Foundation operates as an independent charitable organization established to receive donations and, in turn, provide support for applied science and engineering technology education and awareness.

Awards and Bursaries

The ASTTBC Foundation provides thousands of dollars annually to support students in ASTTBC-recognized programs. Please see below programs eligible for ASTTBC Foundation bursaries and awards.

High School Bursary

Each year, the Foundation provides a $1,000 bursary to a BC secondary school student who will be entering an applied science or engineering technology diploma program at one of BC’s post-secondary institutes in their graduation year. Application deadline date is August 15th of each year.

Post Secondary Awards and Bursaries

To be eligible to receive an ASTTBC Foundation bursary or award, you must be a student enrolled in a full-time technology program recognized by ASTTBC.
