Student Initiatives Program
Are you a student who has an excellent project in mind that could help benefit the campus community? Are you a group of students who are fundraising to start a new a service or attend a conference? If you are a Vernon Students’ Association – Okanagan College member and have a great initiative that would help benefit the campus community, we encourage you to apply for our Student Initiatives program. All you need to do is fill in the paper work for your individual application and we will consider each application and let you know if we can help financially or through letters of support. We know how important it is when a project is in the start-up phase and we would love to help out if we can.

Student Society Emergency Aid Program
Beginning in 2006 the VSAOC, in cooperation with the Province of BC, established an Emergency Financial Assistance Fund for students who come into emergency need of funding. Each year the VSAOC contributes $1000.00 to this fund, with matching funds contributed by the Province of BC. Each year, there is $2,000.00 to distribute to students in need on the Vernon Campus. For more details contact Financial Aid or the VSAOC office. The Financial Aid Hotline phone is located in the library, to the right of the entrance doors.
The VSAOC provides two scholarships annually which are available to students through the Financial Aid and Awards website portion of Okanagan College’s website. Make sure to check if you are eligible for these scholarships.
