The Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada Youth Education Awards are open to survivors of pediatric brain tumour pursuing post-secondary education.
Number Available: Multiple
The aim of the program is to help young brain tumour survivors achieve their dreams through post-secondary education.
Going to college and university is often a milestone for young adults but for pediatric brain tumour survivors, sometimes post-secondary school can be out of reach. Not only can there be the difficulties that come with late effects like epilepsy, physical disabilities or learning challenges, but finances may also be strained due to treatments and recovery. Today, because of the generosity of several donors, there is a special funding program dedicated to this unique group of survivors. These awards were offered for the first time in 2013.
To be eligible, students must:
- be survivors of a pediatric brain tumour (diagnosed with a brain tumour before the age of 25)
- be between the ages of 16 and 30
- be pursuing post-secondary education
- be in their graduating year of High School or CEGEP students, or are currently enrolled full-time in a recognized publicly funded Canadian university or college and planning to continue their full-time undergraduate studies
