This bursary was established in 2000 with funds by the RBC Dominion Securities - Criterion Capital Group.
The purpose of the RBC Dominion Securities - Criterion Capital Group Bursary is to assist worthy students from ranching families of BCCA members to further their education in any desired field of study.
The BC Cattlemen's Association is pleased to offer and administer several other bursaries, grants and scholarships on behalf of the ranching industry.
BCCA bursaries and grants are funded through monies raised at the Annual General Meeting silent and live auction fundraiser and through the generous matching contribution of the Beef Cattle Industry Development Fund. Money raised at this event enables the cattle industry to foster post secondary education and give back to ranching communities.
