Gordon B Shrum ScholarshipsIn recognition of a grant made by the Gordon B Shrum Charitable Fund, each year five students within the Beedie Luminaries Program are selected as recipients of a Gordon B Shrum Scholarship. This is not an additional award, but a designation to acknowledge students’ study interest in urban planning, architecture, environment and ecology, or fine arts. This award reflects Gordon's belief in the value of higher education.
Vistara Elevate AwardsThe Vistara Elevate Award is presented to a student of ethnic and racial diversity, who is pursuing a degree in the areas of finance and/or STEM to promote much-needed further diversity in these sectors of our economy. The Award offers financial support for the first year of their study within the Beedie Luminaries program (not an additional award). In addition, the recipient is offered mentorship support from members of Vistara’s management team and/or network throughout their four-year post- secondary program, as well as a paid summer internship placement upon successful completion of their first year of study.
