Programs and Initiatives of the VNHS help everyone, members and beyond, know nature and keep it worth knowing.

Scholarships, Bursaries, & Science Fair Awards

The Society has five scholarships and bursaries at the University of Victoria at both the undergraduate and graduate level:

Samuel Simco Undergraduate Bursary
Samuel Simco Graduate Bursary
Bev Glover Memorial Scholarship
Alice M. Hay Scholarship
Freeman F. King Scholarship

There is also a bursary at Camosun College and a scholarship at Royal Roads University.

The application process for these awards can be found on the appropriate institution’s website. We encourage anyone interested in pursuing an academic career in the natural sciences to apply.

Science Fair awards are also given out each year by the Victoria Natural History Society to students submitting ecological and/or nature-based projects: prizes are $250 each and a copy of the Nature Guide to the Victoria Region.
