The application deadline for this year was June 30th and we received 12 excellent applications for the three awards. In an effort to be fully transparent the selection of winners will be handled impartially by three BCGA directors that will review the applications and vote on who the award recipients will be. As the person who handles the applications and association membership I (Ryan VH) will remain at arms length and will leave the selections to three of our trusted directors.
We anticipate the results will be announced in early July.
The break down of applications is as follows:
Erissa Yong BCGA Bursary $1000 - 3
Sparky Imeson Memorial BCGA Bursary $1000 - 5
Onkarbir Singh Toor Memorial BCGA Scholarship $1000 - 4
We would like to extend a special thanks to our generous donors, Erissa Yong & Dr. Toor for graciously making these awards possible. Furthermore we would not be able to administer these awards without our strong relationship and the help of the BC Aviation Council.
Award recipients will be recognized at the BC Aviation Council's annual Silver Wings Awards Gala in October.
