The Stigma-Free Society is thrilled to be partnering with the Otsuka-Lundbeck Alliance to offer two deserving youth a scholarship of $2000 to be allocated to their educational pursuits.
Two B.C. students experiencing the effects of social stigmatization, either because of mental illness, LGBTQ+, homelessness, race, or addictions issues, will be selected to receive this scholarship for their Spring 2020 term.
To be eligible for the scholarship, applicants must be B.C. residents and complete a Scholarship Application, and must have dealt with or be currently dealing with the effects of stigma in their lives. Applicants also must be planning on attending school and be accepted at an accredited educational institution for the Spring 2020 term. Applications are due no later than November 20, 2019.
The Stigma-Free Society is committed to eradicating stigma through awareness and education, and we want to ensure that those who experience the negative impact of stigma know that they are not alone and have tangible opportunities to be supported.
For more information on how to apply and to obtain an application, please contact Andrea Paquette, President, SFS: Andrea.Paquette@stigmafreezone.com
We look forward to your application.
