    1. And am glad to hear that now ISS of BC are accepting Bursary applications. I hope that i will be accepted for the bursary, because really want to achieve my goals in post-secondary for nursing.

  2. Hello, my name is Jiyoung Kim.
    I would like to receive a bursary for my coming education in September.
    Because I am in a low income family and I cannot afford to pay a tuition.
    I am going to study an EA program in Surrey community college from September.
    I’d like to care special need children.
    But I have been here over three years.
    Could you consider it for me please?
    Thanks for your support.
