Media Update and Call for Submissions

To whom it may concern,

My name is Sarah Szumlanski, I am the Summer Research Officer for the National Educational Association of Disabled Students (NEADS), working to update and migrate NEADS’ disability awards database ( to a new WordPress platform. The database provides information about scholarships, bursaries, awards, and other funding possibilities for post-secondary students with disabilities in Canada.

The information we try to provide regarding each funding opportunity is as follows:

    Overview of the award/scholarship/bursary
    Dollar Amount
    Number of each scholarship/award/bursary offered
    How to apply
    Contact information
    Institution it applies to (when applicable)
    Type of disability (the options are as follows)
        Attention-deficit disorder
        Blind / visually impaired
        Deaf / hard of hearing
        Learning disability
        Mobility impairment
        Neurological impairment
        Autism spectrum
        Psychological / psychiatric disability
        Speech / communication impairment

If you have a scholarship/award/bursary available for post-secondary students with disabilities that you would like to be listed in our database, please reply to with the above information.
