The 2013 AEBC and T-Base Communications Scholarship Program: Application Deadline - June 30, 2013

The Alliance for Equality of Blind Canadians (AEBC), is a grass roots organization which, through public education 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.

Jennifer Laura Eve Wilson Memorial Scholarships

Jennifer was challenged by the complications of Type 1 diabetes including visual impairment.  She rose above them with her courage, inner strength and determination. She helped make the world a better place for others by giving of herself.  These annual AEBC scholarships continue her generous tradition. 

We are pleased to offer two $1,000.00 scholarships for 2013 in her name.

The T-Base Communications Scholarship

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 endeavours and is not limited to any one discipline. 

One T-Base Communications scholarship of $2000 will be awarded for the 2013/2014 academic year beginning in the fall semester of 2013.
