Apply for a bursary!

Feb 2, 2024, 10:58 AM

The Peel Children’s Aid Foundation offers several bursary opportunities for youth who are or have been involved with Peel CAS. Youth do not need to be in care to be eligible. All youth up to age 29 who have ever been involved with Peel CAS as a child in care, on a Voluntary Youth Services Agreement (VYSA), Continued Care and Support for Youth (CCSY), or as kin, adoption or ongoing service files are eligible for the bursaries. Approval is not based on grades or income, you just have to be an active student to qualify.


Post-secondary Bursary

Apply for a bursary to help pay for your post-secondary education. Any post-secondary training program is eligible including trade schools or certificate programs. Students can apply to receive the bursary for each year of their program.

Apply using this form by March 22, 2024:  PCAF Bursary Application Form


Post-secondary Graduation Bursary

Students graduating from a post-secondary education program (university, college, trade school, etc.) are also eligible to apply for a bursary of up to $1500!
