Support the School of Rehabilitation Science

Support the School

In the fall of 2003, the School of Rehabilitation Science established an endowment fund, which will be used to raise money to support student scholarships and bursaries. We recognize the increasing financial costs faced by students in the professional occupational therapy and physiotherapy programs, and want to increase the scholarship and bursary support that is available to rehabilitation science students.

For more information on the Rehabilitation Science Endowment Fund, please contact Vice-Dean, Dina Brooks at
