Migrant Children's Education Award

The Migrant Children's award is a broad-based initiative that includes post-secondary educators and students, municipal and business leaders dedicated to enriching the lives of local Migrant workers' children with a life changing Canadian post-secondary education.

The Award is a post-secondary partnership initiative between Brock University and Niagara College as well as a community-based collaboration with St. Catharines Mayor Brian McMullan and the Niagara Community Foundation. A core group of Brock and Niagara College senior administrators, faculty and staff have mobilized in-kind support systems that include tuition and ancillary fee waivers along with relevant rebates for two eligible students to attend one of our institutions beginning in the 2012-13 academic year.
