BC Book of Honour Bursary

The Book of Honour was created to recognize outstanding BC Guiders and girls who exemplify the spirit of Guiding through keeping the Promise and Law.

  • Book of Honour Bursary: 1 at $2000

The objectives of the Book of Honour were twofold:

  • to create a special, lasting form of recognition of outstanding members throughout the years, and
  • to help fund the Book of Honour Bursary, which will encourage education/training at a post-secondary institution for members of Girl Guides of Canada – Guides du Canada, graduating from grade 12. This bursary was designed as a Girl Award.

All donations made towards a Book of Honour Recipient are deposited into the Book of Honour account. No Guiding Funds are used to support this bursary. In 2021, The Bursary of Honour had its name changed to Book of Honour Bursary to better reflect the fact that contributions to the Book of Honour Award are used to fund this bursary. This Bursary is solely supported by donations from the Book of Honour applications.

The Book of Honour is on display at BC Guide House and an area-specific travelling Book of Honour is available upon request for area events.
