The Passport to Education Program recognizes and rewards student achievement in Grades 10 to 12 in a broad range of academic and non-academic areas according to guidelines set out by the Ministry of Education. The intent of the program is to motivate all students to study consistently during the years leading to graduation, and to encourage secondary school students to pursue further education through post-secondary institutions and job-training programs. Passport awards are used to further students' post- secondary education and job training.
Employment Insurance (EI) claimants who are unemployed and unable to find work with their existing skills may be eligible to receive funding towards a program that will equip them with skills for employment. Approval for funding is on a case basis. Find out more at a WorkBC Centre.
A Student Line of Credit is a product offered by major banks that allows students to borrow money repeatedly up to a pre-set limit. You only have to apply once and there are no monthly or annual fees. The Student Line of Credit can be used towards tuition fees and other living expenses. During school, students only make low-interest payments on the amount borrowed. Often, students need somebody, like a parent or guardian, to co-sign your line of credit application. This person will also be held responsible if you can’t pay the debt back.
