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 four bursaries and scholarships to help our young learners access continuing education opportunities that will help them reach their potential.

David Mason Educational Fund

The David Mason scholarship assists youth with physical disabilities in undertaking their post-secondary education. Priority is granted to students who received services at Queen Alexandra Centre for Children’s Health.

Lisa Huus Memorial Fund

The Lisa Huus scholarship assists youth with disabilities in undertaking or continuing post-secondary education on Vancouver Island. Funds can be used for tuition, textbooks, equipment, transportation, residence and support worker costs.

Polly Scott Bursary

The Polly Scott Bursary assists youth or young adults between the ages of 17 and 25 with a disability or ongoing health challenge in undertaking or continuing their post-secondary education in Canada.

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 course in pediatric or family care.
