Healthcare Improvement Scholarship Program

Healthcare Improvement Scholarship Program


Deadline: 11:59 pm on September 30th, 2020

Scholarship Program: 

The BC Patient Safety & Quality Council (BCPSQC) and the Institute of Healthcare Improvement (IHI) Open School chapters of BC are pleased to offer Healthcare Improvement Scholarships to support students pursuing educational opportunities to develop and advance knowledge and skills in improving healthcare quality, including accessibility, effectiveness, safety, and equity

Traditionally, scholarships have been granted to support the attendance of quality improvement conferences (e.g. IHI National Forum, BC Quality Forum). Due to the evolving landscape of the Covid-19 pandemic, we cannot support in-person participation in conferences this year. Instead, we encourage students to participate virtually in conferences and/or training courses to build skills toward improving healthcare quality.


  • Full-time or part-time students currently enrolled in any discipline at a post-secondary institution in BC with an interest in healthcare quality are welcome to apply.
  • The proposed educational opportunity/ies must (1) be held virtually, (2) relate to healthcare quality, and (3) be implemented within the 2020-2021 academic year.


Fill out the online application form by 11:59 pm on September 30th, 2020. 

Applicants are encouraged to propose up to 3 different educational opportunities, in order of preference. The application consists of 4 questions that directly reflect the scholarship selection criteria; a resume/CV will be used as supplemental information to the application. Applications will be adjudicated based on the scoring scheme provided in the application form.
