Lived Experience Scholarship Program

Engaging people with lived experience is critical to ending homelessness and an important part of Canadian Alliance to End Homelessness National Conference on Ending Homelessness. With that in mind the CAEH will be offering a lived experience scholarship program so people with lived experience of homelessness can participate in the conference.

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.
