For the eighth consecutive year, Canadian students who are blind or have low vision have the opportunity to apply for the T-Base-AEBC scholarship. This year there are two $1,000 scholarships available.
Every year, T-Base is honoured to contribute $2,000 in support of an accessible education, an initiative that supports our larger goal: to improve accessibility in education. We always look forward to speaking with our scholarship recipients and learning about the important role an accessible education plays in achieving their academic and career goals. Learn about 2018’s scholarship recipients: Allison Lee & Andrea McIvor.
T-Base’s Commitment to Accessibility in Education
T-Base understands that learning styles and requests vary by student. Alternate formats—digital and print—are an essential resource for students who are blind or have low vision. In an effort to ensure all students have the resources they need to succeed, for DSS offices we produce and deliver textbooks and other instructional material in accessible PDF, ePUB3, audio, MathML, reflowed large print and braille. We are committed to ensuring students who are blind or have low vision have equal, fast access to learning materials in alternate formats.
