Donate now to support NEADS' 2019 National Scholarship Programs for Students with Disabilities

The National Educational Association of Disabled Students (NEADS), NEADS National Student Awards Program is the only cross-disability pan-Canadian awards program 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 tuition award), and the NEADS Christine Nieder Memorial Award ($1,000 tuition award) 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 12 years, the programs have awarded 87, $3,000 awards and 19, $1,000 tuition scholarships to deserving students with disabilities. The goal of our current fundraising campaign is to raise $6,000 to support two $3,000 NEADS Student Awards for our 2019 program. All donations will go directly to the awards recipients. Any level of individual or corporate donation/sponsorship can make a difference.

Donations to NEADS are tax deductible and you will receive a charitable tax receipt for 100% of your gift(s) to NEADS.
