Stephanie Gobin is Selkirk College's Manager of Advancement. She is currently on leave.
Launched as a way to improve access to health care careers for students living outside urban areas, Selkirk College’s Rural Pre-Medicine (RPM) Program is providing a successful post-secondary start for future healthcare professionals. Now the community is being invited to help provide a gentle hand as they work towards their goals.
Students in the Selkirk College Nursing Program will have access to increased financial support for the next eight years thanks to the generosity of long time Kootenay local Terry Marshall. In honour of his late-aunt Muriel (Ann) Cullen, Marshall has donated $24,000 to establish a bursary fund supporting nursing students studying on the Castlegar Campus.
Supporting learners through challenging times and graduating an emerging workforce equipped with the educational foundation to assist in recovery is the focus of Selkirk College’s new annual giving campaign.
Financial challenges faced by students are eased through Selkirk College scholarships and bursaries. To help him get through the second year of the Ski Resort Operations & Management Program, student Cicero Gouvea's hard work in the classroom has paid off after being awarded the Fred Bosinger Sunshine Village Scholarship.
She was one of Canada's foremost experts on the history of craft and now Creston-raised Dr. Sandra Alfoldy's dedication to enhancing creativity will continue in the West Kootenay with a new scholarship for students studying in Kootenay Studio Arts.
Challenges arising from the COVID-19 pandemic are being felt across society. For post-secondary students, financial pressures have been compounded causing barriers to learning. Selkirk College has created an opportunity for the community to take positive action to help.
The journey for learners at Selkirk College is not one taken alone. Through the kindness of donors, students in all programs benefit from needs-based bursaries that help ease financial pressure and bolster final outcomes.
