Institute for Advancements in Mental Health Scholarship program
Our scholarship program is Canada’s only bursary program dedicated to funding educational opportunities for people living with psychosis. Our program has been providing funds for educational pursuits since 2003, and to date we’ve supported over 100 students and awarded approximately $250,000.
In addition to being the only bursary program of its kind, our scholarship program realizes educational goals are not limited to traditional forms of higher education and also funds practical education opportunities like GEDs, vocational schooling, professional designations, and skills upgrading opportunities to facilitate re-entry into the workforce.
Following the Annual General Meeting in 2016, the Canadian Association for the Practical Study of Law in Education (“CAPSLE”) established a bursary to provide financial assistance to students entering post-secondary Education and/or Law programs.

The Lamp is awarded annually to a non-teacher who has made an “outstanding contribution to public secondary education in the Province.”

Innovation Education scholarship
At LA Tutors 123, we believe that it’s more than just the grades that make a great well-rounded student. Each one of you is creative in his or her own way: some of you blog; others curate documentary photography on Instagram; still others find imaginative ways to solve problems in their public and private lives. Creativity is the air each one of us breathes, but sometimes we get so concerned with grades that we forget that imagination is our natural problem solver.
One way to showcase your creativity is to innovate either by solving a problem, by designing something that helps others solve problems, or by enhancing our relationship with whatever matters to us. Innovation is what brings our technical skills and our hopes together in unique ways.
It also provides opportunities for gaining real-working experience in a chosen field, and gives students the chance to connect with adults outside their circle who might be able to help students get into their top choice college or get an internship. In the end, innovation makes people look at the bigger picture, which is the best preparation for college and for life.
We at LA Tutors are passionate about sparking the creative genius in students and would love to commend those outstanding students who have a made a difference in the lives of others in some innovative or technological fashion. In order to achieve this, we have established a scholarship for students who meet certain criteria.
