Time is running out for qualified scholarship candidates in BC and across Canada to apply to enter the Bachelor of Disability Management program (BDMP) at Pacific Coast University for Workplace Health Sciences (PCU-WHS) through the National Institute of Disability Management and Research (NIDMAR).
The deadline for applications for the Fall 2022 intake of this bachelor program is June 15, 2022. Potential applicants are urged to apply as soon as possible as scholarships are awarded on a first-come/first-qualified basis.

“Graduates of the Bachelor of Disability Management program are actively improving the wellbeing of persons with a mental or physical impairment and facilitating their return to work in BC, across Canada, and around the world,” says Wolfgang Zimmermann, Executive Director of NIDMAR. He adds: “The longer an injured person is away from work, the chances of them ever returning – to any kind of work – diminishes dramatically, which comes at enormous social and economic cost.”
This one-time scholarship funding to NIDMAR is generously supported through the Government of Canada’s Sectoral Initiatives Program and through a Workforce Development grant from the Government of British Columbia.
Applicants from across Canada outside of BC may qualify for the federal government-funded scholarships, while applicants from within BC may qualify for scholarships under the BC government’s grant program.
“Do it,” says Shanna Ramm, a recent graduate. “In my opinion, Pacific Coast University for Workplace Health Sciences, in association with NIDMAR – the National Institute of Disability Management and Research, is the only place to get your disability management degree. The program has improved my understanding and ability to make a positive difference in people’s lives.”
Says graduate Laura Harrison: “This program helped me learn about the relevant legislation, return-to-work case management skills, and how to connect everything. I really encourage people to take advantage of this wonderful opportunity.”
