West Island College, a not-for-profit school, formed the West Island College Foundation (WICF) in 2011 to foster a culture of engagement from the WIC Community – parents, grandparents, alumni, faculty and friends – that would lead to financial support through an Annual Giving Campaign, and other fundraising initiatives that could support capital projects, Headmaster’s initiatives, scholarships and bursaries.
WIC’s reputation consistently attracts applicants from over 35 elementary schools in Montreal, St Laurent, Laval and the West Island. Building our scholarship and financial aid funds ensures the financial support and recognition that will allow us to continue to attract and retain students who are well-rounded, community-driven and hard-working. Over the last 4 decades, over 250 families have benefited from scholarships and financial aid. Together we can provide students with scholarships and financial aid so that anyone who dreams of studying at WIC can be given that opportunity. Donate now!
The Martin Bailly Bursary Fund helps students who need some level of financial assistance. New and existing WIC students (secondary II – V) in need are welcome to apply. The amount of financial assistance can vary per student and is dependent on the funds available and number of requests per year. Bursary application form.
The Rita and Victor Bertrand Foundation Inspiring Generations Bursary began in 2016 and is open to incoming secondary I students only. Students are to apply for the bursary at the same time as they apply for admissions. Each bursary of $5,000 per year ($25,000 total bursary) is awarded to deserving students for the duration of their WIC education. There are a limited number of bursaries available. Bursary application form.
The Legacy Tile is a tile program available to all who wish to support the school. Located on all levels of the WIC Arts & Sciences Pavilion, the Solar Hall features 1′ X 2′ engraved slate tiles, prominently displaying dedications to alumni, students, faculty and friends.
