The Ultan Byrne Trust provides bursaries to students at the University of British Columbia, University of Victoria and Simon Fraser University.

The bursaries are awarded to students based on financial need and not on academic merit, however they must have been born in British Columbia and enrolled in one of the following faculties:  Medicine, Law, Nursing or Engineering.

The late Judge BPM (Patricia) Byrne, a British Columbian Provincial Court Judge, established the Trust prior to her death.  She named it in honour of her father Dr. Ultan Byrne.

The Byrne family was very supportive of education and in fact her father Ultan was a family doctor, her mother a nurse and her brother Peter was an engineer.

Today, four people administer the Trust, all of who were very close to Judge Byrne.

The Trust meets once a year to review applications.

Applications for the 2018 calendar year are now being accepted, closing date is Friday, November 17, 2017 at 4:00 pm PST.
