The Trevor Harrison Civic Engagement Scholarship

Trevor Harrison was a lifelong political volunteer and staffer. He was policy-driven and pragmatic, and a beacon of optimism in an often cynical profession. His legacy is one of inclusivity, kindness and respect.

To honour Trevor’s legacy, his family has created this Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada student scholarship in his name. The scholarship aims to provide financial support to politically engaged students, who have also been impacted by a brain tumour and who want to make positive contributions to public policy and/or politics through civic engagement, in their pursuit of post-secondary education.

Trevor was always thinking of others; this scholarship seeks to embody his spirit and vision for a better Canada.

It awards $2,000 to the successful candidate.

Successful applicants may be eligible to receive an additional $50,000.00 in year two. Consideration for year-two funding will be based on the successful completion of outlined goals for year one and the Research Committee’s consideration of impact and potential of the project to advance in a meaningful way.

Youth Education Awards

Funds raised by Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada help support leading-edge research into the cause of and cure for this devastating disease, while also helping to fund vital programs and services for the brain tumour community.

Survivors of a pediatric brain tumour who are pursuing post-secondary education are invited to apply for the Youth Education Award program. The aim of the program is to help young brain tumour survivors achieve their dreams through post-secondary education. These are one-time awards of up to $5,000.00 for tuition and associated ancillary costs.
