The Jericho Hill Legacy Trust currently provides funding for scholarships and bursary. The goal of these scholarships and bursary is to reduce barriers to post-secondary education for Deaf and visually impaired students. The funding for these scholarships and bursary comes from the Trust fund itself and is separate from the Individual Compensation Fund. The JHLT does not run any of these scholarships directly. There are outside selection committees who receive and review the scholarship applications. Three of the scholarships are for high school students in BC:

Class Action Scholarship:

  • Class Action
  • BC Deaf Community

The fourth scholarship is for Class Action Members only. It is called the BCDST-CA Scholarship. This scholarship is available for Class Members who are planning to take a College or University program that is between 2 and 4 years long. Class Members do not need to live in BC to apply for this scholarship. This scholarship is available to more than one successful applicant each year. If two (or more) people apply each year and meet the scholarship requirements, then two (or more) BCDST-CA scholarships will be awarded each year.

The maximum total amount available is $25,000 for a 4-year full-time program. The total amount of the scholarship depends on how long the College or University program is if taken full time (any length between 2 years and 4 years). The maximum amount each year is up to $6,250. The actual amount depends on the cost of tuition and some book and transportation costs.

For example, if a Class Member is registered for a 3-year college program, they could get up to a maximum of $18,750 split over three years. If the same student is studying part time and will complete a 3-year college program over 6 years, they could get up to a maximum of $18,750 split over six years.

The scholarship money is not to pay the cost of interpreters. Paying for interpreters is the responsibility of the college or university where you will be studying. The scholarship money is for paying tuition and some book and transportation costs.

The BCDST-CA scholarship was established in October 2006. The first successful applicant for the scholarship is Linda Ryall (nee Heavenor) of Oshawa, Ontario (formerly of Powell River, BC). Linda is taking a 2-year American Sign Language and Literacy Instructor Program at George Brown College in Toronto. Congratulations Linda.
