Support UVic Students at the

Bamfield Marine Sciences Centre 


For 50 years, the Bamfield Marine Sciences Centre (BMSC) has provided students with valuable on-site Marine Biology learning.

The coastal environment, facilities and marine vessels make the Bamfield Marine Sciences Centre a dynamic learning destination for students each year. These students spend time at Bamfield participating in intensive, experiential courses and conducting independent field research on the ocean with living organisms.

Students consistently report that their time at BMSC was life-altering, and career-inspiring.

Please join us in supporting UVic students’ participation at the BMSC. You can do so through operational support, or student support:


Bamfield Marine Sciences Centre Fund
Donations to this fund will be used to assist the Department of Biology in sending UVic students to the Bamfield Marine Sciences Centre, including, but not limited to, student transportation costs.


Bamfield Marine Sciences Centre Student Award

Donations to this award will support undergraduate students entering third or fourth year in the Faculty of Science to assist with the cost of attending the Bamfield Marine Sciences Centre for the purpose of research or course work. Preference will be given to students with demonstrated financial need.

Thank you for your contribution!
