W. Kaye Lamb Essay Scholarships

The British Columbia Historical Federation awards two scholarships annually for essays written by students at B.C. colleges or universities, on a topic relating to British Columbia history.  One scholarship ($750) is for an essay written by a student in a first or second year course; the other ($1,000) is for an essay written by a student in a third or fourth year course.

To apply for the scholarship all candidates must submit (1) a letter of application and (2) a letter of recommendation from the professor for whom the essay was written.  First and second year course essays should be 1,500-3,000 words; third and fourth year, 1,500-5,000 words.  By entering the scholarship competition the student gives the editor of British Columbia History the right to edit and publish the essay if it is deemed appropriate for the magazine.

Applications by mail with 3 printed copies of the essay (no e-mails, please) should be submitted to:  Marie Elliott, Chair, B.C. Historical Federation Scholarship Committee, PO Box 5254, Station B, Victoria, B.C.  V8R 6N4.  For information on other BCHF awards please check ww.bchistory.ca
