Bostock and Fallis Families of Monte Creek Heritage Fund



The Bostock and Fallis families have ranched in the Monte Creek area of BC since 1888.  During that time they have been instrumental in the development and activities within the Interior of BC from politics, newspapers, charitable organizations, cattle organizations and the 4-H movement.  To give back to the community, a Fund was established through the BC Interior Community Foundation to award two annual bursaries as well as provide donations to various charities within the area serviced by the BC Interior Community Foundation.

Bursary Program Description

This bursary is to provide financial assistance to students who can show financial need and wish to further their studies after completing high school and are enrolled in a recognized post-secondary institution (trade school, college, university) within Canada.  The applicants must have graduated from a secondary school within British Columbia and east of a line from Hope to Terrace.  There will be two bursaries of $2,000 each available annually should suitable candidates apply.  If the applicant is successful he/she will not be eligible to apply again but if unsuccessful he/she is welcome to apply again.  The successful bursary applicants will be selected by the Cattlemen’s Martin Riedemann Society.
