The Daniel Schickedanz Scholarship Award Program

Daniel Schickedanz’s belief in youth is rooted in his own experience that if given opportunity & support, youth can excel in their education and contribute to a positive social change in society. The Daniel Schickedanz Scholarship Award supports young people of refugee and/or migrant background in their efforts to pursue higher education. It encourages youth engagement within their local communities.

The Daniel Schickedanz Scholarship Award is facilitated through the collaborative efforts of Canadian Lutheran World Relief (CLWR) and the Canadian Council for Refugees (CCR).
