About the scholarship

Are you a student with epilepsy who is enrolled or is about to be enrolled in a post-secondary education program this September? Then congratulations, you are already well on your way to beating the odds. Only one in three people with disabilities earn a post-secondary degree in Canada. Epilepsy Ontario wants to improve those odds and we want to celebrate your success in getting as far as you have already.

That is why we are pleased to announce the competition for the Osler Epilepsy Scholarship for 2019 is now open. If you have Epilepsy and you are pursuing a post-secondary education anywhere in Ontario, you are eligible for one of four $1,500 scholarships to be awarded in June at a special ceremony in Toronto.  You can access the application form by clicking here. Fill out the form, collect the required documents, then tell Epilepsy Ontario in a brief personal essay how you can or could see yourself in the future giving
back to Epilepsy and or another Association and those affected by it.

You could become a member of an Osler Scholarship community of past winners like Melanie Jeffrey, who has since gone on to become a member of the Board of Directors of Epilepsy Ontario and has become a passionate advocate for Epilepsy awareness.

For Lawton Osler – his company’s generous support makes the Osler Epilepsy Scholarship possible — it’s all about helping hard working students with Epilepsy who have already overcome so many barriers reach their full potential.  The awards night in June, he says, is a truly special occasion. “To see the students come with their parents, grandparents, boyfriends and girlfriends – it’s just amazing.”

The 2018 winners were Bronwyn Clifton, Eric Jose, Sarah McKenzie-Kerr, Rebekah Pregent, and Olivia Tomchik.

The deadline for applications for this year’s awards is June 14, 2019 at 4 PM.  If you have any questions about the application process you can call them at 905-738-9431 or visit the Epilepsy Ontario website at
