Endowment Funds

The purpose of the fund is to provide an annual scholarship for a young person in Siberia to take an introductory course in Western Market Economy Business Practices, as provided by the British Columbia Institute of technology (BCIT).  The scholarships are called "The Rotary Clubs of Novosibirsk and Bamaul Scholarship".  The Rotary Foundation manages the fund.


The program of studies is the Business Management Studies Program, Term 1 curriculum of BCIT International.  Scholarship application procedures follow those of the the Rotary Foundation for Cultural Ambassadorial Scholarships, with the funding provided for a three-month scholarship.


The Rotary Cub of Burnaby Deer Lake has assumed the responsibility for the scholars as required for a host club and for the coordination with the sponsor clubs.


Thank you to David and Lis for their generosity and continuing commitment to promote this valuable program, changing lives of young Russians to better understand Canadian business and the ideas of Rotary within it.


Program Co-Chairs: Jane LePorte and Penny Offer.
