Each year, the Richmond Hospital Healthcare Auxiliary awards bursaries to post-secondary students who have volunteered a significant amount of time at the Richmond Hospital and who are entering the second or subsequent year of their post-secondary education in a health-care related field in Canada. Bursaries are awarded during the summer in amounts of $3,000, $2,000 & $1,000. All applicants must apply and have resided in British Columbia for a minimum of three years. Previous winners are not eligible to apply.
