The aim of the program is to help young brain tumour survivors achieve their dreams through post-secondary education.
Survivors of a pediatric brain tumour (diagnosed with a brain tumour before the age of 25), between the ages of 16 and 30, who are pursuing post-secondary education are eligible for this unique Brain Tumour Youth Education Award opportunity. These awards were offered for the first time in 2013.
The awards are open to students who will be enrolled full-time in a publicly funded Canadian university or college. Students are eligible if they are in their graduating year of High School or CEGEP students, or are currently enrolled full-time in a recognized publicly funded Canadian university or college and planning to continue their full-time undergraduate studies.
The application window for our 2024 Youth Education Awards is now open.
