The 1000 Women Rising fund provides financial support for Bow Valley College’s female students who are changing their lives through education. Despite financial barriers, over the past three years these students have higher completion rates compared to other schools in Alberta. This tells us that Bow Valley College students who receive this funding use it to persist and succeed in their studies. We’ve already raised more than $880,000, helping more than 500 women since 2016. Thank you. You are their champion.
