April 24, 2013

On April 18, Vancouver Community College and the Vancouver School board signed a collaborative agreement to improve education and career opportunities for Aboriginal students. Highlights of the agreement include establishing initiatives to help Aboriginal students explore careers and plan for the future, exploring scholarships and grants that will make it easier for Aboriginal students to attend PSE, and developing and supporting innovative bridging programs that allow Aboriginal teenagers to access college programs and services. As a show of commitment to the agreement, VCC will offer one year of tuition-free studies to 5 Aboriginal high school students in Vancouver upon recommendation from the school board. VCC News
