Funding and Scholarship Programs

The Alberta Committee of Citizens With Disabilities (ACCD) 25th Anniversary Scholarship Program

The ACCD is a grassroots provincial organization committed to improving the lives of people with disabilities living in Alberta. To that aim, the ACCD has created a bursary to be awarded to people with disabilities in order to assist them in furthering their expertise in the educational field of their choosing, thus enhancing the individualís accomplishments. The total amount awarded yearly is $2,000, with each disbursement ranging from $200 to $500.

Applicants must be Alberta citizens, 18 years of age or older, who have a disability, and a member of the ACCD. Scholarship winners must use the funding within the province. In addition to a completed application form, applicants are asked to include a letter of reference from an adult other than a family member. Applicants are judged on their motivation, level of need and economic circumstances. All application materials must be received at the ACCD office by April 30.
