About Douglas College and the Scholarship
The largest public college in British Columbia, Canada that awards degrees is Douglas College. There are 4,210 overseas students, 8,500 continuing education students, and nearly 17,000 credit students enrolled here. The institution, which was established in 1970, bears Sir James Douglas’s name, a former governor of British Columbia. Kwantlen College separated from Douglas College in 1981. Douglas College provides bachelor’s degrees, as well as regular university courses in the humanities and sciences, business courses, and creative arts job training. On January 21, 2020, Douglas College’s coat of arms was made public. Carrie Lynn Victor, a Coast Salish artist, created the logo for the college’s 50th anniversary.
First, in the history of Canada, the insignia was entirely created by an Indigenous artist. The crowned heart in the center of the logo is a design element seen on the coats of arms of the Douglas family, including Sir James Douglas, the College’s namesake, and also alludes to the school’s motto, “Do what you love.” Douglas College’s varsity athletic teams are referred to as the Royals and Roary the Lion serves as the school mascot. Along with men’s baseball and women’s softball, the Royals also play in men’s and women’s basketball, curling, golf, soccer, and volleyball.
This scholarship was established in 2017 to aid in the recruiting of foreign undergraduate athletes to Douglas College, assist them with their financial needs, and pay the difference in tuition prices between international and domestic students. The student’s overall academic year performance will determine if they receive this honor. Each academic year, a maximum of 5 qualified grantees will be chosen. Both the Fall and Winter semesters will get an equal share of the awards.
