Award honours John Wilson & financially assists faculty dependants and retirees - deadline Jul 13

Three times a year, the CFA offers partial-tuition reimbursement to encourage dependant children of regular members to attend Capilano University. Retired members are also supported in their quest for life-long learning by attending Capilano's continuing studies programs.

This reimbursement is made through an award that was created in 2007 called the CFA Award. In 2015, upon John Wilson's retirement, the award was renamed the John Wilson Award in recognition of the many years John dedicated to the students and faculty of Capilano University. He initiated the process for this award and others including the annual endowment fund bursary, which is administered by the University. John was also extremely instrumental in negotiating the range and calibre of Cap U faculty benefits and an extensive pension plan that generously assists not only faculty members at Capilano but around the province.


Each academic term (fall/spring/summer), recipients of the John Wilson Award will be reimbursed a percentage of the standard, domestic per-credit tuition fee. The actual amount of each award will depend on the number of applications received and funds available.

Applications for the John Wilson Award are posted on the forms page of this website: The submission deadline for summer term reimbursements is July 13, 2016.
