Scholarships and Bursaries

The BC Electrical Association has been very active in promoting careers in the electrical industry.  Our AMP Network regularly participates at career days at high schools, colleges, and universities.  Since the inception of this program in 1991, the program has awarded over $500,000.

Members take pride in the fact that we support the future generations of our business, and feedback indicated that members wanted to support students and employees directly furthering their career in the electrical industry.

We have four opportunities for you:
  • BCEA Scholarship ($1,000) - Scholarships are available to dependents (including grandchildren) of personnel of BCEA member companies in good standing, up to a maximum of two scholarships per member company. The employee of the BCEA member company must live and work in British Columbia. Students are not required to attend school in B.C. (Maximum of three scholarships per individual).
  • BCEA Tommy Haddock Memorial Scholarship ($1,000) - Qualified applicants must provide the information required for a scholarship AND must be pursuing a career in the electrical field.
  • BCEA Bursary ($500 - $1000) - Bursaries will be awarded to current member employees, post secondary students, and grade twelve students who will be attending a post secondary school in September. (Apprentices must be returning to school in the next school year).
  • Betty Lou Education Relief Award ($2,500) - This award is to honour the memory of long standing Board member, Betty Lou Pacey.  Individuals must have worked in our industry for a minimum of 3 years, have made an impact within their organization, and have volunteered time to the association or the industry.
