DB Perks & Lifesaving Society Scholarships

Through generous support from DB Perks & Associates Ltd, the Lifesaving Society is able to offer the annual DB Perks Scholarship program.

To support and assist Lifesaving Society lifeguards and instructors trained and working in BC & Yukon who are pursuing post-secondary education.

Three Scholarships of $1000.00 each will be awarded each year.

Nominees must be holders of current Lifesaving Society awards and be actively employed by a BC & Yukon Branch Affiliate as a lifeguard or Lifesaving Society Instructor, part-time or full time. Nominees must also be pursuing post-secondary education in the subsequent school term at a university, college or vocational school.

These scholarships are administered through the BC & Yukon Branch of the
Lifesaving Society. All applications are reviewed for eligibility and eight finalists are chosen. Finalist applications are then rendered anonymous and sent for review by Doug Perks and his scholarship committee for determination of the four successful candidates.

Applicants must submit the standard form along with a resume outlining aquatic experience, both paid and volunteer, accompanied by letters from one work reference and one personal reference. Volunteer involvement in the aquatic community is an asset. 

Application and reference letters must be received in the Branch by 4:30 pm January 31.
Award recipients will be chosen by the end of February.
Scholarships will be awarded at the Branch Annual General Meeting in March.
