A new bursary program at NBCC aims to support Ukrainian students impacted by the ongoing conflict in Ukraine.
NBCC will provide a minimum of 20 bursaries, equivalent to NBCC’s International tuition ($9,468 CAD), to eligible incoming and returning Ukrainian students for the upcoming academic year.
“All of us at NBCC have witnessed, with the rest of the world, the strength, determination, and courage shown by the Ukrainian people,” said Mary Butler, President and CEO of NBCC. “As part of our commitment to nurturing a sense of belonging and embracing culture and diversity, we felt it was important to find a way to support our Ukrainian students during this challenging time.”
To avoid placing additional burden on Ukrainian students, there will be no application process for this bursary. Instead, NBCC will identify and notify eligible incoming and returning Ukrainian students of the new bursary program.
NBCC will also award 12 donor-funded bursaries in the amount of $1,000 each to support impacted students not eligible for the Ukrainian Student Bursary, and will allow Ukrainian citizens to defer tuition deposits on applications to NBCC for the 2022 – 2023 academic year.
With six campuses across New Brunswick, NBCC’s quality-assured, relevant training opportunities support the needs of learners, employers, and communities, contributing to New Brunswick’s social and economic prosperity. Find out more about skills development training at NBCC by visiting: www.nbcc.ca
