Support Future Coady Participants

Coady Scholarship Fund

Historically, close to two-thirds of accepted candidates are forced to defer or withdraw their participation due to a lack of personal and organizational financial resources. Scholarships provide the difference and ensure these dedicated leaders can access skill development opportunities.

You can designate your donation to the Coady Scholarship Fund today. Simply choose ‘Coady Scholarship Fund’ in the designation section when making a donation online.

It is helping people with a hand up. It is unleashing passion in people. It is unleashing a passion for change in individuals and communities. That is in your DNA at Coady.

- David Martin (COMART Foundation)

I was first impressed by the Coady philosophy as a student at StFX in the 1950s and have followed the impressive work of Coady Institute ever since, and note how respected Coady is throughout the world. Janet and I are committed to build scholarships to provide support for individuals who will study at the Coady and bring their knowledge and leadership skills back to their communities.
