Daniel Schickendanz Scholarship Award Program

We are tremendously excited and proud to announce that for the next 10 years, we will be offering newcomer and refugee youth 10 scholarships each year. This amazing initiative is made possible thanks to the collaboration of the Canadian Lutheran World Relief and the generous donation of Daniel Schikendanz.

This program has been created to support young people as they:

  • Play a role in creating positive social change
  • Prepare to be active citizens promoting diversity and advocating for refuge and immigrant rights

Details

  • Five (5) youth will be awarded on an educational basis and another five (5) will be awarded on a community engagement basis.
  • Each scholarship is valued at $650.00 CAD 
  • Applications open August 10, 2021 and close September 20, 2021
  • The CCR Youth Network Core Team will review the applications and select applicants based on criteria along two streams: a) educational commitment and b) community engagement.
