Our Bursary and Scholarship Program

Each year, through the generosity of our donors and friends the Catholic Children’s Aid Society of Hamilton is proud to offer our Youth and Family Opportunity Bursaries. These $1,000 bursaries are offered to youth and families, who are receiving services from the agency, to help them achieve their life’s goals. In the past, bursaries have been offered to youth who are continuing with post-secondary education, to parents who are going back to school, skills training programs to improve their skills and knowledge, and to a youth who has started their own business and who needs support to purchase equipment to make their dreams a reality.

We are also able to offer two multi-year scholarships:

  • the Ralph and Rose Sazio Scholarship, offered annually, to support current or former CCAS clients who are pursuing post-secondary education and/or training. This is a $2,000 scholarship, renewable for up to 4 years, made possible through the generosity of Rose Sazio and her family.
  • the DiNardo Scholarship, offered bi-annually, to support current or former CCAS clients who are pursuing post-secondary education and/or training. This is a $2,000 scholarship, renewable for up to 4 years, that honours the commitment of Ersilia DiNardo, former CCAS Executive Director, to the educational outcomes of the children, youth and families we serve.

If you are interested in sponsoring a bursary or creating a scholarship, please contact Lisa Hostein at 905-525-2012 x3256, lisa.hostein@hamiltonccas.on.ca.
