Students must currently be accepted to or enrolled in a post-secondary institution and provide documented proof of registration as part of the application process and on receipt of the award.

- Applicants must be Canadian citizens or permanent residents of Canada.
- Applicants must have a permanent disability.
- Applicants must be currently enrolled at a post-secondary institution as a full-time student.
