Donate to the John and Michelle Ward Memorial Scholarship Fund

This fund supports Students pursuing their Commercial Pilots License (CPL). The cost of obtaining a CPL often exceeds $85,000. Less than ten percent of this is covered by the student aid program. It is an important goal of the BCAC to change the BC Student Aid program so that it reflects the true cost of obtaining a CPL (like Alberta does).
