Memorial Bursary Fund

Applications are currently open!

CAEFS Memorial Bursaries are annual bursaries that support women and gender-diverse people who are or have been incarcerated in reaching their educational and employment goals. Each bursary is $750 and the number of bursaries distributed is based on the availability of funds. Past bursary recipients have used bursary to fund entrepreneurial projects, buy school supplies, or subsidize the cost of post-secondary courses, and more.

Applications are evaluated based on whether there is a clearly stated goal and a plan to achieve that goal. It will also take into consideration if the applicant has faced or is facing barriers in achieving their goal that this bursary might help to overcome. We encourage applicants to list other ways that CAEFS or a local Elizabeth Fry Society might help you in achieving their goal, but those questions will not be used to evaluate the application.
