Initially established as the Bennett Bursary, in honour of long-time Board member and education advocate Betsy Bennett, the Ocean Wise Bursary Program serves schools that have a high concentration of youth vulnerable to the effects of poverty.


Please apply below for the opportunity to have your students participate either at the Aquarium or in your own school. Bursaries for programs at the Aquarium include entry into the Aquarium for your class, one of our curriculum connected education programs and one school bus. Bursaries awarded to schools requesting AquaVan or AquaZone programming include one full day of programming.

Please wait...

The Vancouver Aquarium will be temporarily closed to the public starting Tuesday, March 17, 2020 and all programming will be cancelled as a preventative measure to help stop the spread of COVID-19 through our community.​​​​​ Learn more.
