Tamara Gordon Foundation Scholarship is open to students with physical disabilities studying at any university or college in Ontario, Canada.
The Tamara Gordon Foundation was founded in 2013, to help scholars with enduring physical disabilities who wish to seek the fulfillment of an academic field of study. The Tamara Gordon Foundation Scholarships aid benefactors to defray a part of the fees to finish their post-secondary schooling.
The award of a Tamara Gordon Foundation Scholarship is competitive, thus educational standing and volunteering will be important determining factors for the Selection Board.
Awards are given on a yearly basis. A benefactor in performing good may have their scholarship continued at a reduced payment at the choice of the Selection Board by re-application.
