TRU Williams Lake Trades & Technology Awards

Trades & Technology Awards
The Details

Williams Lake Campus

Investment: $500,000
Endowment generating $10,000 per year

Opportunity

$10,000 annually would provide 10 to 20 students with financial assistance to attend industry relevant Trades and Technology programs at the TRU-Williams Lake campus, which is located in the heart of the Cariboo, surrounded by natural resource industries.

Impact

This support would be the single biggest impact on student assistance in Trades and Technology at TRU-Williams Lake. The demand for trained and workers with applicable industry skills continues to grow, but financial barriers are still a reality for many looking to get into these industries. Financial assistance in the form of awards would provide many students with the opportunity to achieve their goals. As well, it would help TRU recruit and retain the best students.
