Brain tumours are unpredictable and complex, and can affect vision, hearing, memory, balance and mobility. Their effects (physical, emotional, and financial) last a lifetime. 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 for tuition and associated ancillary costs. 

Value: up to $5,000

Deadline: April 19
