Student Bursary Program

$1,000 towards Second-Year Tuition

2015-2016 Winner: Jessica Burgoyne, Drafting- Architectural, NSCC Lunenburg Campus

This is an opportunity to entice students of NSCC’s Architectural Drafting, Architectural Engineering Technologist and Construction Administration Technicians programs to get involved in NSHBDA.  Our Association offers students and professionals alike, an opportunity to gain knowledge through education and training programs and direct, personal contact with leading professional designers.  It also introduces new skills and helps maintain leading-edge industry knowledge, making us all better designers and possibly better candidates for future job opportunities.

In addition to these benefits, it also gives our Association an opportunity to financially help an appropriate and deserving student.

1) Candidates must be student members of NSHBDA
2) Candidates must be active in NSHBDA
3) Candidates must be a first year NSCC student in one of the above noted programs, returning for the second year studies

Judging will be carried out by the NSHDA bursary management sub-committee.  Upon selection of the appropriate student member, their name will be submitted to the executive/ board of directors for final approval.

One major element in the judge’s decision will be involvement in the Association. The judges will consider attendance at our monthly meetings, workshop weekends and any other training opportunities that a student maybe able to participate in.  They will be looking for a student that has a desire and passion for the industry.  A scholastic element may also be considered, but it will not be the major component in the decision making process. Other elements to be considered are school attendance and performance, overall quality of work, meeting of deadlines and personal involvement as a team player.

The winner will be announced at the June NSHBDA annual general meeting.  A cheque for $1,000.00 will be given directly to the returning student at the September meeting.  If the winner fails to return for the second year of studies, they will forfeit the bursary and it will be forwarded to the runner up winner.  This person will only be announced if the need should arise.
