Business Bursary

In keeping with the Comox Valley Women’s Business Network motto – “In Pursuit of Excellence” – the WBN membership offers a bursary valued up to $500 (five hundred dollars) each year.

The course must be from an accredited institution, professionally recognized group or association. The member must not have been awarded the bursary in the past two years or at the Board’s discretion.

The deadline for applications is April 22 each year.
