The Trustees of the BCDST (formerly) Board would like to welcome you to the bcdst.ca website (BC Deaf Scholarship Trust)
The chief objectives of the BCDST are the advancement of education and vocational programs for the benefit of the B.C. Deaf Community, including Class Members. These programs are designed to advance the education, literacy, employment and economic self-sufficiency of Class Members and members of the BC Deaf Community. The BCDST Board is legally obligated to follow this mandate and is independent of any community agency or organization.
This website has been set-up to provide you with information about the BCDST and the Programs, Services and Scholarships funded by the Trust. The BCDST does not provide services directly, but rather contracts out to community agencies. These outside agencies are accountable to the BCDST to provide the services as agreed upon.
To help you navigate this website and find the information you need about the BCDST you will find a menu of links on every page. Click on History to find out how the BCDST was started. Next you will find links to Programs and Scholarships. Click on Board to meet the BCDST Trustees, both past and present. Next is the link to the BCDST Donations page and a Contact Us link in case you can’t find information you are looking for.
Do you have ideas, suggestions, questions or concerns? The BCDST Trustees want your feedback. You can fill out a Feedback Form or email one of the Trustees directly.
Take care and thanks for your interest in the BC Deaf Scholarship Trust.
