Being in a road accident often derails plans, including plans for education and careers. We respect and admire those who have been in road accidents and are working towards the best recovery possible by continuing their studies. We are offering one $1,000 scholarship annually to a road accident victim who has had had their career or education plans altered by an accident and are pursuing post-secondary training in Canada.
