It is that time of year again!! BC Rehab has opening the application process for the 2016 Gert Vorsteher Memorial Awards! The Gert Vorsteher Memorial Awards, worth $5,000 each, are presented annually and are designed to recognize and celebrate individuals who have demonstrated determination and resilience in reaching their rehabilitation goals and personal independence. If you are unfamiliar with the award program and would like more information or you’d like to pick up an application, please come down to the BC Rehab office in room 193 of GF Strong and speak with Trynka. Past and present clients of GF Strong or another rehabilitation facility in British Columbia may apply for this award.

The deadline for application submissions is February, 29, 2016. The Gert Vorsteher Award ceremony will take place sometime in May 2016.
Congratulations to the 2014 Gert Vorsteher Bursary winners!
The Gert Vorsteher Memorial Bursary for students with disabilities was created by BC Rehab Foundation in 2014 to award two educational grants of $5,000 each to British Columbians with a physical disability who intend to pursue post-secondary education that will lead to employment and greater personal independence.
