Have you ever thought of getting a certificate in mechanics? Or maybe you have always wanted to learn photography or go to a post-secondary institution?
No matter what your dreams are, CASA’s scholarship program might be able to help!
The scholarships provide opportunities for CASA youth to pursue further education. Scholarships are to be used to offset registration fees or any other education or training expenses related to the intended program of study or to purchase equipment or supplies necessary to advance the successful applicants’ education.
Payment Process for Successful Applicant
• Proof of registration must be provided as soon as it is available.
• Receipts must be submitted for reimbursement.
• No part of any scholarships granted by CASA Foundation can be applied to previous debts, accounts, or shortfalls.
• If funds have been advanced but there is a subsequent change to the intended program of study, please submit the change for approval to CASA Foundation.
• If funds have been advanced but there has been a change of mind to pursue any form of education or learning program, funds must be reimbursed in full back to CASA Foundation.
