The Canadian Premature Babies Foundation (CPBF) bursary was established in 2015. Each year we help post secondary students with the costs of their education through our bursary program. The main requirement? Each bursary applicant must have been born prematurely and live in Canada.
This bursary is not necessarily about “financial need”, but demonstrated determination and resiliency following the applicants’ premature birth. We know being born prematurely comes with its challenges, sometimes more than anyone will ever know, and to be able to progress through the school system and into post secondary school is a major feat. We celebrate each applicants’ experiences while they strive for a post secondary education.
This bursary is dependent on funding availability and is subject to change.
The COVID-19 pandemic has placed enormous strain on charities. As a registered charity that relies on grants and donations throughout the year, we have come to the difficult conclusion we will be unable to carry out our annual bursary program this year (2020/21 school year).
At this time are working hard to guarantee funding to respond to the needs of families who are currently in the NICU with their babies or have been recently discharged.
With the support of our community and generous supporters, we will aim to resume this program in 2021.
We appreciate your understanding and ongoing support. We are in this together.
