Travel Bursary Program

The Fraser Institute offers a limited number of Travel Bursaries to cover transportation and accommodation costs for BC students wanting to attend an Explore Public Policy Issues student seminar in Vancouver. We offer two seminars in Vancouver each school year – one in the fall semester and one in the winter semester. If you are passionate about the economy, business, and critical issues of the day, join other students from across BC and listen to academics, community and business leaders address important public policy issues. Enjoy a challenging and inspiring day of discussion and inquiry while networking with students from across BC.
