Sooke resident Emily Nicole Kraft is among 109 post-secondary students who were awarded a scholarship from the Irving K. Barber British Columbia Scholarship Society.
The scholarships are awarded annually to undergraduate students who have completed at least one year at a public post-secondary institution in B.C. and are transferring to another degree-granting institution to complete their studies.
The fund is named after philanthropist Irving K. Barber, who had a long history of supporting public education and research projects in B.C. before his death in 2012.
This year more than $540,000 was handed out to students.
Kraft, a Camosun College student, plans to attend Royal Roads University, in Colwood.
