ANTCO has developed an annual award to honour the legacy of former CEO and Order of BC recipient, Ruth Williams. This is the first year the bursary will be provided and is for students that are pursuing post-secondary education and/or entrepreneurial related activities. The bursary is open to Indigenous students residing in or originally from British Columbia.
Entrepreneurial activities would include starting a business venture, assistance with formal business planning, marketing, and other similar start-up costs. Applicants applying for entrepreneurial activities are expected to have progressed from the idea stage to the implementation stage of their plan.
