Supporting education for people with disabilities

The REA Foundation and its partners have developed a scholarship program specially for students with disabilities.

As part of our active commitment to the social integration of people with disabilities, the REA Foundation and its partners have developed a scholarship program specifically for students with disabilities. This program is possible thanks to the generosity of our donors, who wish to contribute to accessible education for people with disabilities.

Make a DONATION

Students receive a $3,000 scholarship. The number of scholarships awarded depends on the donations received each school year.

The goal of these scholarships is to provide financial support to students with a sensory, language or motor impairment. It can be used to cover various study-related expenses, such as books and textbooks, clothing required by a program, accessories required by the institution, housing, groceries or recurring expenses, such as electricity and the Internet.

“Full-time studies are a big challenge, especially for those who have to make an extra effort to understand what’s being said.”
