$16,000 in Scholarships for International Study & Work Programs
Selkirk College has been allocated $16,000 in scholarships to support its students participating in international study or work programs in 2013. Selkirk students travel to places such as Japan, France and Guatemala as a part of their studies each year. Programs such as the Irving K. Barber Pacific Horizons, One World and Premier’s International scholarships support international exchange and help Selkirk students become global citizens.
For each of these scholarships, successful applicants must clearly demonstrate academic merit and significant community and school involvement. The Irving K. Barber Society, in conjunction with the Victoria Foundation, administers these scholarships.
One World Scholarships ($1,000 - $3,500)
One World scholarships fund students pursuing study or work abroad programs that are at least three weeks in length, and either a formal part of their Selkirk College program or carry transferable academic credit for their diploma.
Premier’s International Scholarships ($6,000 - $10,000)
Premier’s International scholarship recipients are chosen provincially each April. Students must meet all One World eligibility criteria and additional academic standing and program length requirements to be considered.

Students participating in study or work abroad programs focusing on language acquisition and cultural immersion, can apply for a Pacific Horizons scholarship.
