Accepting applications for 2023!

We’re delighted to launch the 2023 Nahom Berhane Scholarship for Leadership and Inclusion!

To date, the Scholarship has supported 20 hard-working young adults from BIPOC communities, contributing to their academic success and career development as they continue to serve our city and inspire their communities. In acknowledgment of the importance of continuing to address the systemic racism, discrimination and inequities faced by Black, Indigenous and People of Colour, this year the Scholarship is prioritizing students of African descent.

What’s new this year
Inflation has hit hard this year affecting the cost of many essential goods and services. In acknowledgement of the financial pressures that many families and individuals are experiencing, the Scholarship Committee has increased the Scholarship award to up to $4,000 per recipient.

This year the Scholarship deadline is March 31, 2023. For more information about the Scholarship and how to apply, please visit
