About the Scholarship
The AMI Scholarship program launched in 2012 and was created to further strengthen AMI’s commitment to making accessible media for all Canadians. In 2016 the program was renamed the AMI Robert Pearson Memorial Scholarship in honour of Robert Pearson, AMI's Accessibility Officer.
The program is open to Canadian citizens or permanent residents of Canada with a permanent disability who are currently registered in and returning to a full-time program of study at an accredited Canadian post-secondary college or university. In 2017, AMI will award two $5,000 bursaries to two deserving students with a permanent disability; one from the English community and one from the French.
