Student-Parent Award

NOTE: We are currently not accepting applications until September due to the Government’s Student Choice Initiative, which has major impacts on our ability to fund grants, awards and scholarships. For more details on the disastrous effect of the Student Choice Initiative, visit

The $500 GSA Student-Parent Award was created to help alleviate the financial burdens that parents incur while obtaining a university degree and to recognize academic accomplishments. The GSA realizes that students with families have added financial responsibilities, which make higher education less accessible to them. In establishing the criteria for this award, the GSA congratulates all student parents in their efforts to balance academic responsibilities and parenthood. Applicants must be members of the GSA.
