Are you a student who received services at an EKO General Member organization? If you’ll be studying at a college, university, Indigenous institute or career training program in the fall of 2024, EKO wants to support your education and career goals!

We’re offering eight scholarships of $3,000 each, including an exclusive award for self-identified Indigenous, First Nations and Métis students. Our scholarship is an invaluable tool to help you achieve your personal and professional goals.

Since 2011, we’ve supported kids with disabilities pursuing education programs–from the arts to health sciences, to game development and law. Our scholars are interested in the visual arts, performance, music, technology, sports, literature, journalism, and so much more! Students who have received support through the EKO Scholarship Program have attended colleges and universities across Ontario.

Post-secondary education is an important element for achieving independence, yet people with disabilities are less likely to attend and complete post-secondary education than those without disabilities. Our hope is that the EKO Award helps more students with disabilities achieve the life they want through post-secondary and graduate education.

Applications for the 2024 EKO Scholarship Program are now closed, scholars will be announced in the fall.
