Lived Experience Scholarship Program

The CAEH will be offering a lived experience scholarship program so people with lived experience of homelessness can participate in the conference. We have a limited number of scholarships available.

Applicants may be currently or formerly homeless. Scholarships include airport transportation, airfare (or appropriate alternative), hotel accommodation for up to four nights, conference registration and a small per diem. Financial support for childcare at home while attending the conference is available on a case by case basis. Young people under 18 may apply but must be accompanied by an adult. Adults accompanying youth scholarship recipients (under 18 years old) will be responsible for their own travel, accommodation and registration costs.

2017 National Conference on Ending Homelessness will have a special focus on Indigenous homelessness. With this focus in mind we are especially interested in supporting Indigenous peoples with lived experience of homelessness to attend the conference.
