Corsage Project/Children’s Aid Foundation of Canada Scholarship
The Corsage Project is proud to support the educational goals of youth in foster care by providing funding to Children’s Aid Foundation of Canada’s scholarship program. Children’s Aid Foundation of Canada is our country’s leading charity dedicated to improving the lives of children and youth who have experienced or live at risk of abuse, neglect and abandonment. Through no fault of their own, these young people lack almost everything most kids take for granted – things like a safe, stable home, someone to nurture their growth, and a sense of unconditional love. The Foundation supports and delivers a broad range of high-impact programs and services that directly serve vulnerable children and youth involved in the child welfare system across Canada.
Stand Up for Kids is the Foundation’s national campaign for child welfare, and is bringing together caring Canadians in creating change for thousands of young people in need. Together, with partners like The Corsage Project, the Foundation will stand up for kids in care who urgently need support and stand alongside former youth in care as they enter adulthood.
Applications for this $5,000 scholarship are now open. For information on other supports available to young people in and from care, please visit: www.cafdn.org/for-youth
