PHCHF Diversity Scholarship Program

PHCHF recognizes that the strength of its membership is reflected in the many cultures and identities represented within its co-ops. PHCHF encourages applications from these diverse communities.

Our Goal

The purpose of the PHCHF Diversity Scholarship is to recognize people living in co-ops who are actively promoting diversity through work within their community. We want to help them with their post-secondary education by providing them with award money, credit counseling and employment services.

The Scholarship

We will offer scholarships to students who are just graduating from high school, or are currently enrolled in post-secondary education, or are returning to school or after a break to complete an undergraduate program.


Applicants must:

  • Live in a PHCHF member co-op and graduating from an Ontario secondary school
  • Plan to attend a recognized, publicly funded, Canadian, post-secondary education institution on a full-time basis in the 2020/2021 academic year
  • Play a significant role in diversity initiatives in their school and/or local community
  • Demonstrate a financial need
  • Agree to attend the annual PHCHF Diversity Scholarship Presentation
  • Agree to have their photograph taken if they are interviewed

In light of the challenges due to COVID-19 and the cancellation of the school year, graduating high school students will not be required to submit references from the school with your application.

The application deadline is now closed. The application for 2021/2022 academic year will be posted in November 2020.
