How to Apply

Since 1999, Diabetes Hope Foundation has invested over $1.8 million in education grants to support students living with diabetes across Canada. The Diabetes Hope Scholarship Program was established to recognize youth in the community who have excelled in their academic achievements; demonstrated exceptional leadership skills and volunteerism in the community; and possess exemplary diabetes self- management practices.

With generous support from our donors, Diabetes Hope Foundation will be expanding the scholarship program to award scholarships to secondary students from British Columbia, Alberta, Ontario and Newfoundland (number of scholarships allocated per province, and provinces are selected by our donors and community partners). See below for important dates and requirements for submitting an application for the program.
