Student Scholarships

 

students working in groups

Because of our donors, we can improve accessibility to education and allow our students to reach their full potential.

 

Scholarships can open doors to students who may be unable to attend a post-secondary institution or allows them to focus solely on their studies, instead of juggling part-time employment.

Below are just a few examples of our incredible supporters.
