The Ministry has recently updated the eligibility criteria and guidelines for provincial bursary programs in French. Bursaries are available for the following:
Of particular interest for French language teachers are the changes with the Teacher - Professional development in French bursary. Any BC certified teacher - whether in the public sector or independent school system - can apply for any in-person training program in French language and/or French teaching methods offered in Canada, including conferences hosted by ACELF, ACPI, APPIPC, BCATML, or BCLCA. This new allowance can greatly assist French teachers' professional development opportunities with organizations, such as BCATML. Registration fees of up to $1500 for one training program per year and up to $300 for one conference per year, plus a travel and accommodation subsidy. Teachers are also able to apply to this bursary every year, even if they have already received funding in previous applications!
