  BURSARY  

As a local non-profit organization with deep roots in our community, Alliance Française Vancouver (AFV) is proud to support young students who need help in their French language learning journey.   AFV has a long tradition of supporting students in need with its first bursary given out as early as the 1920s.

The Alliance Française Vancouver Bursary Program was re-established in 2014.  
‘Setting up this program at AFV was important to me. I believe in the power of education to transform lives. The potential of our youth is tremendous. They should not be deprived of accessing a quality program because of financial need. This bursary is our way to encourage all those who want to pursue their French language education and promote bilingualism in BC.’ – Damien Hubert, Executive Director, Alliance Française Vancouver
