Northern Physiotherapy Bursary




About the Award

People across Northern BC have long been advocating for a physiotherapy program in the North to address the need for equitable access to physiotherapy services in northern and rural communities.

This bursary is being established at UNBC to financially support a student enrolled in the new full physiotherapy program in Prince George.

Recipients will have demonstrate financial need and satisfactory academic standing. First preference will be given to long-term residents of northern and rural British Columbia.

Recipients will be encouraged to consider a career in public practice in a northern, remote or rural community upon graduation.

Request for Support

The new physiotherapy program at UNBC is set to accept its first students in September 2020. Let’s show these students right from day one that local physiotherapists and like-minded community members are here to support their efforts.

We are looking to raise $30,000 to create an endowed award that will support a physiotherapy student at UNBC every year in perpetuity. And Lesley and Dennis Schwab have very generously offered to match donations to this bursary up to $15,000.

Please join us! Your gift will make a difference in the lives of these students and the patients who they will serve.
