Academic Bursary

BURSARY SUBMISSIONS REOPEN IN 2020

 

The success of the Celebration of People Awards event has led to the establishment of the bursary fund aimed at providing financial assistance to students living with a diagnosed disability who wish to pursue post-secondary education in Ottawa.  Introduced in 2017 to celebrate Canada’s 150th Anniversary, the bursary is awarded annually, to four students. The four recipients must be accepted to, or enrolled at: Algonquin College, University of Ottawa, Carleton University or La Cité Collégiale.

BURSARY SELECTION CRITERIA
The selection committee will choose four successful candidates based on the following criteria:
• Part‐time, full‐time, mature students and high school graduates must be accepted or enrolled in one of the four eligible institutions; Algonquin College, University of Ottawa, Carleton University or La Cité Collégiale.
• Must be in need of financial assistance and in good academic standing
• Must have a diagnosed disability
