Douglas College Faculty of Science & Technology Bursary
The Y. P. See Memorial Bursary was established in 1993 by Douglas College Modern Languages instructor, Ralph Lake, in memory of his brother-in-law who was a research chemist with Connaught Labs in Toronto, Ontario and had a passion for science. In 2016, the Y.P. See Memorial Bursary was merged with unrestricted funds from the Sustainable Energy Series at Douglas College to create the Douglas College Faculty of Science & Technology Bursary.
Dispensing Optician Association of BC Bursary
The Dispensing Optician Association of British Columbia was formed in 1960 to enhance the business and political influence of the optical business in the province. The DOABC played a key role in advancing the interests of opticians by acting on issues that affected the optician business/profession as well as individual opticians. When the association disbanded in 2010, it boasted 380 active members and stores. After 40 years of service, the DOABC was recognized by government and industry as the senior advocacy association for the opticianry business/profession in B.C. In 2010 DOABC made a significant contribution to the Dispensing Optician Bursary Endowment. In recognition of its support, Douglas College Foundation renamed this endowment to reflect the association's generosity.

Hearing Instrument Practitioner Bursary
The Hearing Instrument Practitioner Bursary was established, in 2017, for donors who either didn’t want individual recognition for their contributions, or who wanted to give a gift but couldn’t commit to the minimum threshold required to create their own named fund. The purpose is to support students enrolled in the Hearing Instrument Practitioners program who are facing financial barriers.
Matt Rumberg Memorial Bursary
The Matt Rumberg Memorial Bursary was established by Norma Rumberg in memory of her husband, Matt, who passed away in April 2007 after trying to save his beloved dog, Holly. Matt is missed greatly by his family, friends and community. The Matt Rumberg Memorial Bursary reflects Matt’s belief in the protection and support of animals and the importance of higher education. This bursary will benefit students enrolled in their second year of the Veterinary Technology program who have contributed to their community in a manner that demonstrates their love and compassion for animals and who have demonstrated financial need.
Royal City Jewellers Bursary
The Royal City Jewellers Bursary was established by Howard Isman to recognize and reward students enrolled in Douglas College who face significant financial barriers. His son, Michael Isman, is now the President of Royal City Jewellers and has continued to support this fund, increasing its annual award value over the last few years. In 2016, Michael agreed to fund two general bursaries in the Fall semester for students enrolled in any program at Douglas College, and an additional bursary in the Winter semester designated to Veterinary Technology students.
Veterinary Technology Trust Bursary
The Veterinary Technology Trust Bursary was established by faculty to assist students in financial need. Two bursaries in the amount are available annually.
