The bursary is offered in partnership with Canadian Immigrant and Canadian citizens and landed immigrants who have arrived to Canada for the first time within the past five years qualify for the Lilian To Bursaries.
Four full-time tuition bursaries will be rewarded (excluding books, application fee and material fee) to a maximum of $8,000 each. Eligible programs include Bookkeeping, Sales & Marketing, and Human Resources, in addition to, Business and International Trade.
Lilian To was a crusader for immigrants and the longtime executive director and CEO of S.U.C.C.E.S.S – a multi-service community organization that provides assistance to new immigrants. After Mrs. To’s sudden death in 2005, the bursaries were created to ensure that her work with immigrants continues by addressing the challenges they face when trying to secure a stable career in Canada.
Last year’s winners included Rabia Ikram, Avril deSouza, Qunying Xue, and Frances Grace Quiddaoen. Each winner has a full year to redeem their bursary for the Ashton College program of their choosing. The winners are chosen by an external panel of four judges after submitting an essay detailing financial struggles, past education, community involvement, and future career plans. A reference letter from a previous instructor/employer is also required. Once these criteria have been considered, the four most outstanding applicants are chosen.
