Scholarships from the Alliance for Equality of Blind Canadians

The Alliance for Equality of Blind Canadians (AEBC) is a grassroots organization which, through education, empowerment, and advocacy, works to improve the lives of blind, deaf-blind and partially sighted Canadians.

Each year, the AEBC offers scholarships to recognize outstanding blind, deaf-blind, and partially sighted post-secondary school students. This year, we are pleased to offer three awards in total.

The application deadline for 2014 AEBC scholarship program is Friday, June 20th, 2014.  All applications and supporting materials must have been received by AEBC on or before that date in order for an application to be considered. Applications may be made in either English or French.

Two Jennifer Laura Eve Wilson Memorial Scholarships (worth $1,000 each) will be offered.

Jennifer was someone who throughout her life, showed courage in overcoming adversity and selflessness in helping others in need. She took the challenges life put her way from the complications of Type 1 diabetes including visual impairment, and rose above them by her courage, inner strength and determination to make the world a better place for others. These annual AEBC scholarships continue her tradition of helping others.

The T-Base Communications scholarship program helps to fund the educational pursuits of an outstanding blind, deaf-blind or partially sighted student in Canada who is continuing his or her academic education at the post-secondary level.  

The T-Base Communications Scholarship is designed to help students pursue their educational endeavors and is not limited to any one discipline.   One T-Base Communications scholarship valued at $2,000 will be awarded for the 2014/2015 academic year beginning in the fall semester of 2014.
