In an effort to bring young volunteers into the Canadian Hemophilia Society, Manitoba Chapter (CHS-MC), and in recognition that a sound education is of utmost importance (particularly for those who might not be able to succeed in a vocation requiring strenuous physical labor), CHS-MC offers the opportunity for those who qualify to receive a community service award to attend a post-secondary institution of their choice. Those wishing to upgrade and/or retrain are also eligible to apply to this program.

Community service awards shall be subject to funding availability. At the discretion of the review committee, applicants applying for a community service award may be awarded up to a maximum of $2 000. Additional Academic Achievement Awards may be awarded to qualified applicants to a maximum of $500.
