The Irving K. Barber British Columbia Scholarship Society, in partnership with the Victoria Foundation, hosts a suite of international scholarships designed to support students from BC in studying abroad. Successful applicants must clearly demonstrate academic merit as well as significant involvement in their community and/or school.

One World International Scholarships are available to students pursuing study or work abroad programs that are either:

  1. A formal part of a BC credential program and/or carry academic credit recognized at a BC educational institution ($1,000-$3,500), or;
  2. Offer experiential learning opportunities involving language acquisition and/or cultural training ($1,000).

Students who apply may also be considered for the high-value Premier’s International Scholarships if they meet additional criteria and indicate interest.
