The Wanderer’s Amateur Athletic Scholarship

This award is the result of the generosity of former members of the Wanderer’s Amateur Athletic Club. When the Halifax club disbanded, some of its remaining assets were donated to the Canadian Paraplegic Association (Nova Scotia), and this scholarship was created. This award is open to students who have had an injury leading to paraplegia or quadriplegia, who have been accepted at a post-secondary institution in the Canadian Atlantic provinces. Applicants must be Canadian citizens or landed immigrants residing in Atlantic Canada prior to applying. Deadline for applying is July 31.
