Making a Difference Awards

The Making a Difference Award is available to a student in Ontario at Carleton University with a documented permanent physical disability entering a program of study within the Faculty of Engineering, the Faculty of Science, the Arthur Kroeger College of Public Affairs or in a program in Accounting.

Amount: $5000

Number Available: 4

Deadline: August 31st 2020

To be considered we ask recipients to demonstrate leadership, academic excellence and be committed to making a difference in their larger communities. Preference will be given to those students who are in need of financial aid. This award may be continued for three consecutive years of undergraduate study provided the recipient maintains full-time enrollment in an undergraduate degree program and upholds good academic standing. In addition the recipient needs to continue to demonstrate a financial need. If the award is lost in one year, it sadly cannot be regained in subsequent years.

Big Thanks to Daryl Rock who established this award in 2019.
