New Canadian Education Award

A scholarship fund to support immigrants or the children of immigrants in their chosen field of study

About the fund

The New Canadian Education Award was established by Marta Mihoff and her husband Derek Broughton in honour of Marta’s grandfather, Leo Mihoff, who immigrated from Bulgaria around 1920. As a young man, he had been apprenticing as a tailor but was pressed into two wars. At the first opportunity, he and his brothers left for Canada, where he worked for the rest of his life as a labourer. It was important to Leo that his eldest child, a daughter, go to university, and told her the only thing which cannot be taken from you is education.

Purpose

The intent of the award is to help new immigrants and their children get access to training, education, or accreditation for interrupted careers. Any type of career development will be considered such as a professional trade, care-giver, or university or college degree or diploma.
