Anne Stafford Light Up The Future Bursary

Vision: Beneficiaries of the Anne Stafford Light up the Future Bursary will have the opportunity to share in all elements of living in the community as a result of their pursuit of an educational program or personal interest course.

Beneficiaries of the Anne Stafford Light up the Future Bursary will have an enhanced social role as a result of their pursuit of a personal development opportunity.

Background and Purpose: Anne worked for Community Living Ontario for almost 30 years, helping our movement in many ways, including the pursuit of alternatives to institutionalization. The Light up the Future Bursary launched in 1993 in honour of Anne’s retirement, in hopes of leaving a legacy that would support people who have an intellectual disability to pursue personal development opportunities. The fundraising efforts at Community Living Ontario and the generous donations of many member organizations have supported the bursary.

Eligibility: The Bursary is open to Ontario residents aged 18 and older who identify as having an intellectual disability and are seeking to pursue an educational program or personal interest course. Please include a description of the course with the application.
