Scholarship Program

Each year the PEI Literacy Alliance awards three $1500 scholarships with money raised at the PGI Golf Tournament for Literacy website.

You can apply for one of these awards if you are an adult who had trouble with reading and you are continuing your education at UPEI or Holland College. To find out more, contact your admissions office.

The memorial scholarships honour these three literacy champions:
