Donate now to support NEADS' National Scholarship Programs for Students with Disabilities
The NEADS National Student Awards Program is the only cross-disability awards program in Canada that is open to students with disabilities at all levels of post-secondary education, regardless of field of study. The NEADS National Student Awards ($3,000 tuition awards), the NEADS Holly Bartlett Memorial Award ($1,000), and the NEADS Christine Nieder Memorial Award ($1,000) recognize outstanding Canadian college and university students with disabilities for their academic and community achievements, and their potential to succeed in their chosen career. Over the past 10 years, the programs have awarded 85, $3,000 awards and 15, $1,000 tuition scholarships to deserving students with disabilities.
The goal of this campaign is to raise $6,000 to support two $3,000 NEADS Student Awards for our 2018 program. All funding raised will go directly to the awards recipients.
