Post-Secondary Scholarships


Unique in Canada, the mission of the AboutFace Post-Secondary Scholarships is to support the education and advancement of students in the facial difference community. 

Two scholarships are awarded each year through the AboutFace Post-Secondary Scholarship Fund and these are made possible through the generosity of donors.

Eligibility Criteria:

  • The scholarship is for a person living with a facial difference who is a resident of Canada.
  • The student can be entering any year, for any degree, diploma, or certificate program – but the recipient can only receive one $2,000 scholarship in a lifetime.
  • The student must be entering or enrolled in a full-time vocational, university, or college program at a recognized post-secondary institution.

Scholarship applications for 2024 are now open! Please find the application package below and be sure that all three documents are included in your application.

“Growing up as a first-generation Filipina immigrant with cleft lip and palate, I didn’t know anyone like me – these two perspectives will help me to serve individuals with personal understanding. Receiving the scholarship means so much to me. It allows me room to breathe.”
