Bill 7 Award

A Post Secondary Scholarship for Lesbian, Gay, Bi, Trans, Two-Spirited and Queer Students in Ontario.

2023 Presentation Event

Dec. 6, 2023

Bill 7 Award held another lively scholarship presentation event on November 6, 2023. We were delighted to have over 150 supporters, students and guests attend an in-person celebration of our 24 very deserving scholarship recipients.

We heard many inspiring stories of what it means to be a queer and trans student in today’s post-secondary education environment. With their touching speeches, students showed their appreciation for the support they received in pursuing their studies. Thanks to our generous donors, Bill 7 Award was able to present a fifth continuing scholarship to James Svoboda – continuing scholarship students are entitled to receive their scholarship each year for up to 4 years as they complete their degree.

 We would like to take the opportunity to thank our event sponsors - EY, IBM, IGM Financial, Manulife and McMillan LLP. It is through their generous support that we're able to hold this event and recognize our scholarship recipients. We also want to thank our supporters – over 40 individual and corporate donors, including corporate donors Left Field Brewery and RBC – whose donations make the scholarships possible.

The online application for the 2024 scholarships will open in May 2024! Stay tuned to the Apply page for more information.
