AABRD Undergraduate Scholarships


Scholarship Value: $1,000
Awards Available: 1

The AABRD Scholarships recognize academic achievements, contributions to, and endeavours in advancing the field of recreation for people with disabilities.

The scholarships (graduate: $3,000 and undergraduate: $1,000) assist Albertans as they advance their education in the areas of recreation for people with disabilities (e.g., recreation administration, adapted physical education, rehabilitation medicine or other related programs).

In 1972, the Alberta Advisory Board on Recreation for the Disabled (AABRD) was formed to act as a catalyst in the promotion of recreation services for people with disabilities. Twelve years later, the AABRD felt that it had fulfilled its primary objective and entrusted the selection and distribution of its awards and scholarships to the Alberta Recreation and Parks Association.

Support for the AABRD Awards & Scholarships is provided through a Legacy Fund, managed by Alberta Sport Connection.

Award Criteria:

Selection is based on the following considerations:

1. Academic record

2. Alberta residency

3. Related course work

4. Memberships, awards, and distinctions

5. Work and/or volunteer experience in the field of recreation for persons with disabilities

6. Future plans

Application Deadline:
