Students awarded scholarships

Dawn Creba and Lisa Sevenhuysen of Nanaimo are among 98 other B.C. students who received a $5,000 Ike Barber Transfer Scholarship this year from the Irving K. Barber British Columbia Scholarship Society.

The scholarships are awarded annually to undergraduate students who have completed two years at a public post-secondary institution in B.C. and are transferring to another degree-granting institution in the province to complete their degrees.

They are funded from the returns on a $15 million endowment established by the province in 2006.

Creba spent the last two years at Camosun College and is transferring to the University of British Columbia.

Sevenhuysen is moving on from Vancouver Island University to the University of Victoria.

Undergraduate students must have a grade point average of at least 3.5  and demonstrated service to their school and/or community.
