Each year, ONPHA awards the Kathleen Blinkhorn Aboriginal Student Scholarship to five Aboriginal students in Ontario to assist them with their post-secondary education costs. Each scholarship winner receives $1,000 for uses including tuition, books, technology (laptop, etc.) and transportation.
The 2016 application deadline has now passed. The application form for 2017 will be available next spring.
About the Scholarship
In December 2009, the social housing sector lost a dedicated colleague and tireless advocate in Kathleen Blinkhorn. To celebrate her memory, ONPHA, with the support of Kathleen's family, developed the Kathleen Blinkhorn Aboriginal Student Scholarship to commemorate her work developing Aboriginal housing programs and working with Aboriginal communities.
