A Scholarship and Bursary Guide

Education is the key to the future and a decent quality of life. Financial support of education is the means to making that happen.

The Foundation for the Advancement of Aboriginal Youth (FAAY) is a national scholarship and bursary program administered by CCAB that responds to the critical need to assist Aboriginal high school and post-secondary students with bursaries and scholarships — through the generous support of program sponsors.
