Scholarships and Bursaries

The UFV LIBIT department proudly announces the introduction of a new award (available in Spring of 2009), recognizing student achievement in leadership. This $250 award will be available to UFV students in the Library and Information Technology program who have demonstrated leadership through things such as community service, student activities, and volunteerism and are in good academic standing.
