Our Bursary and Scholarship Program

Each year, through the generosity of our donors and friends, the Catholic Children’s Aid Society of Hamilton proudly presents our Youth and Family Opportunity Bursaries. These $2,500 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 a multi-year scholarship this year:

  • the Ralph and Rose Sazio Scholarship, offered annually, to support current or former CCAS of Hamilton service recipients 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.

If you are interested in sponsoring a bursary or creating a scholarship, please contact Amanda Deschenes at 905-525-2012 x 3052
