BCITO Grants and Scholarships

All BCITO Grants and Scholarships have now been allocated for 2015.  Check back here again early in 2016 to find out what opportunities are available around the same time of the year as below.  

Outward Bound Specialist Trade Scholarships

Each year, 10 BCITO Outward Bound scholarships are available to BCITO apprentices completing a National Certificate in a specialist trade.

Designed to encourage self-confidence, self-awareness, self-motivation and personal responsibility, Outward Bound challenges participants both physically and mentally.

Scholarship winners will represent BCITO alongside apprentices from across the building and construction industry as part of the annual joint initiative between Outward Bound and the Built Environment Training Alliance (BETA).  They'll develop new skills and realise their potential so they can become future leaders in their industry.

Applications for 2015's Outward Bound Scholarships closed on Monday, 6 April 2015.

Gateway Scholarships

BCITO wishes to give graduates of BCITO Gateway programmes the opportunity to access further study within the construction industry so that they may enhance their career prospects through a formal BCITO qualification.

Any apprentice who graduated Gateway during 2014 can apply to for this scholarship which covers the full cost of the chosen BCITO programme and associated BCITO resource material.

Only 5 Gateway Scholarships were available and applications closed on Tuesday, 31 March 2015.

Employer Development Grants of up to $3000

These grants give employers within the building and construction industry access to study programmes to help develop and grow your business.

They're available to employers of current BCITO trainees and can be used for any training or development assistance which best suits an employer's personal or business development needs.

Although there's no application close date as such, once the 12 are awarded, this opportunity is gone for the year.
