MAYTREE SCHOLARSHIP FOR REFUGEES IN CANADA DD 25 MARCH

Posted: February 21, 2011 in FUNDING, Scholarships

******PLEASE NOTE CAPETOWN TO CAIRO HAS NO SCHOLARSHIPS TO OFFER. WE SIMPLY MAKE AVAILABLE INFORMATION ON VARIOUS SCHOLARSHIPS AVAILABLE. WE HAVE RECEIVED NUMEROUS EMAILS AND COMMENTS ASKING FOR SCHOLARSHIPS BUT WE REGRET WE ARE UNABLE TO PROVIDE ANY AT THE MOMENT. ALL THE BEST WITH YOUR SCHOLARSHIP SEARCH*****

This is one of the most inspiring scholarships I have come across in a long while. Some of you might not know that for many refugees, coming to Canada can be a financial hurdle. For those whose applications are sorted out whilst still in the refugee camp, the Government of Canada expects repayment for any financial expenses incurred in getting the refugee to Canada e.g. air tickets etc. It began in 1999 at a time when Canada restricted financial aid to citizens and permanent residents. Through the efforts of Maytree, that access was expanded by legislation to include Protected Persons.

So a scholarship that provides financial support to refugees intent on continuing their education rates an A in my books. Here is more info as posted on their website :http://maytree.com/grants/maytree-scholarship-program

“ The  impor  tant  thing  to  remember is  to always have faith in yourself and your ability to overcome adversity. I truly believe that life is a beaut i fu l  s t ruggle. ”Salma Adam, Maytree Scholarship Student

The Maytree Scholarship recipients are a truly inspiring bunch.  To better understand the challenges faced by many of those who find safety and succor in Canada, read their stories here.
