Alumni, faculty, staff and our community members have come together to expand Langara’s scholarships, bursaries and award opportunities. Over the past few months, seven new awards have been created including the Ukrainian Support Bursary, Dr. Lane Trotter Bursary and Chartwells Diversity Award.

A heartfelt thank you to all our generous donors for their continued commitment to our students' academic journey. Read more about how these awards are supporting our students!

The Ukrainian Support Bursary was established as part of the Canadian post-secondary institutions’ commitment to assist and support Ukrainian and Russian students impacted by the war. This bursary was created to help current or future students in need of emergency funding for rent, food, or tuition.

Past and present board members who worked alongside Dr. Lane Trotter created a bursary for students with financial needs called Dr. Lane Trotter Bursary. It recognizes him for his service, dedication and passion for supporting students while serving as Langara’s former president and CEO.

Compass Group Canada has established a new endowed award, the Chartwell’s Diversity Bursary, which supports students from underrepresented populations studying at Langara who are in financial need.

Flywire established the Flywire Emergency Fund to support international students in need of financial assistance. Students can be enrolled full-time in any program of study at Langara including Regular Studies and Continuing Studies.

David Drummond and Donald Davis established an endowed award named Helen Jean Drummond Bursary to honour David's mother who was a nurse. The bursary supports future nurses in their education in their third or fourth term of the Nursing Program.

Harry Lendvoy Scholarship was established by the friends, family and colleagues of Harry Lendvoy in recognition of his 50th year of instruction at Langara. This award supports students who have shown academic excellence and are committed to pursuing a career in the field of Sports Medicine.

The Lawrence & Kay Moseley Memorial Award was created in memory of Lawrence and Kay Moseley who were both keen supporters of education and had lifelong interests in the humanities and social sciences. The purpose of the endowed award is to recognize and encourage students who are changing academic direction or who had a break in their education.

The Read Mercer Entrance Award was created by Read Mercer, a community journalism mentorship program that helps residents of the Downtown Eastside who have a passion for writing or reporting. The award helps fund the cost of tuition and other fees to support two or more students joining the journalism program. Students also have the opportunity to participate in a short internship program with Megaphone magazine, which features stories, photography, and art from local artists. Megaphone is sold on the streets of Vancouver and Victoria by homeless and low-income vendors, helping to provide opportunities for work.
