AMI Scholarship Program Open for Students with a Permanent Disability

The AMI Scholarship program launched in 2012 and was created to further strengthen AMI’s commitment to making accessible media for all Canadians. In 2016 the program was renamed the AMI Robert Pearson Memorial Scholarship in honour of Robert Pearson, AMI’s Accessibility Officer.

The program is open to Canadian citizens or permanent residents of Canada with a permanent disability who are currently registered in and returning to a full-time program of study at an accredited Canadian post-secondary college or university. In 2017, AMI will award two $5,000 bursaries to two deserving students with a permanent disability; one from the English community and one from the French.

About the Author: Mary-Jo Fetterly

Hello, I’m Mary-Jo and I am passionate about accessibility and inclusion. I am very excited to be a curator for this Hub, which is presented by the Rick Hansen Foundation. Since my spinal cord injury in 2004, I have been involved with, or alongside the RH Foundation in working toward a more inclusive, accessible world. Living with paralysis is direct exposure to the challenges and issues that face millions of people worldwide. In my work with professional and civic organizations including current appointments at City of Vancouver – Person’s With Disability Advisory Committee, Vancouver Resources Society, Civil Rights Now and The RHI Consumer Advisory Panel – I experience the complexity of addressing the issues to deliver relevant and meaningful change. Here is where The Hub, and you and I come in. With our professional and direct relationships on matters of access and inclusion we can accelerate the pace of change through the sharing of resources, knowledge and ideas. We are all contributor’s here, so please join us on this new and innovative platform. You are welcome to email me and I look forward to seeing you here, on ‘The Hub’.
