The VGHSON Alumnae Education Committee is pleased to announce exciting changes to the Bursary Award Program.

Effective with the 2021 Bursary awards a descendant of a grad of the VGH SON or UBC/VGH Collaborative program will now be eligible to apply for a bursary.  Required proof will be a photocopy of the graduate’s diploma and/or a letter of explanation including the relationship to the graduate.

With thanks to the overwhelming generosity of Alumnae members our funds have increased, and we are now able to offer larger bursaries depending on the category.

Preserving our Legacy

With a focus on preserving our legacy as one of Canada’s premiere nursing schools, we are dedicated and driven to continuing to uphold and celebrate VGH School of Nursing graduates. Every graduate is welcome to join the Association by paying a nominal yearly membership fee.

Supporting Our Alumnae
