Quotes from some recipients:

“I am writing to thank you for your generous award. Your award has been a great help to me financially during a time when money is in short supply. Having my hard work recognized in this way has renewed my motivation to succeed here at BCIT’s Business Management Program.”

“I would like to thank you for the receipt of the CIPH Award. It is with great pleasure that I receive this! This award will alleviate financial stress and allow that much more concentration on my education in the Business/Accounting program at Georgian.”

“Thank you for awarding me the CIPH Award. I have worked hard to do well (at Georgian College) and set a good example for my two daughters. Raising two children and excelling at school was no easy task but the satisfaction of making it through and being chosen for this award reinforces that the time and energy put into it was well worth it. Your generosity is appreciated and I am grateful to have been selected.”
