Helping them reach their potential

We believe children and youth with health challenges deserve the same opportunities in life as other children.

That’s why we administer two bursaries to help our young learners and their health care providers access continuing education opportunities that will help them reach their potential.

Lisa Huus Memorial Fund

The Lisa Huus Bursary assists youth with disabilities in undertaking or continuing post-secondary education at an accredited institution in British Columbia and in Alberta. Funds can be used for tuition, textbooks, equipment, transportation, residence, and support worker costs.

The current cycle of applications is open. Applications close May 31, 2024.


Women’s Institute Bursary

The Women’s Institute Bursary honours our beginnings, assisting staff members who provide services to children at the Queen Alexandra Centre for Children’s Health in undertaking continuing education courses in pediatric or family care.

Applications are now closed and will reopen March 1, 2025.
