Paying for continuing education can be expensive. As a thank you to Home Visitors for their time dedicated to serving, and to support them in transitioning into new career roles, we have created several scholarship opportunities for those who demonstrate an interest in pursuing higher education.
Mothers Matter Centre is proud to administer seven different scholarship funds for Home Visitors and mothers in the HIPPY program as part of our goal of supporting Home Visitors and mothers to succeed in their career paths. The seven scholarship programs are: The Kay Bell Scholarship; The Sheryl Kennedy Scholarship; The Carol & Ron Slater Scholarship Fund; The Kort Family Scholarship Fund; The Sharon & David Johnston Scholarship Fund; The Honourable Lois Mitchell Scholarship Fund; The Mothers Matter Staff Scholarship Fund.
Scholarships are awarded to Home Visitors who enroll in a program that provides a certificate, diploma or degree from an accredited institution. The program must be a minimum of 1 year and funds can be used towards tuition, school fees and books.
