ICCC Scholarship Fund

ICCC is initiating a special Scholarship Fund to fund this program. Scholarship donations are solicited from the local Indo-Canadian community and the broader Ottawa community. If you are interested in making a tax-deductible donation, please click here to donate to Scholarship Fund. We appeal for donations of $500, or a multiple of $500. Each scholarship awarded will be attributed to a donor.

The amount accumulated in the Scholarship Fund by December 31 will determine the number of the scholarships to be awarded each year. We count on community donations to honour deserving students with a token of the community appreciation.
