An Investment in Black Canadian Youth

The Black Canadian Scholarship Fund (BCSF) is dedicated to enhancing the educational future of our young people, supporting the future leaders of tomorrow and ensuring community development. The BCSF was established to provide opportunities and encourage academic excellence for qualified black students in the chosen fields of study. These opportunities are made available through the support and generous donations of many, through scholarships or bursaries.

The BCSF was established in 1996 by Dr. Horace Alexis and members of the Ottawa community and funds are held with the Ottawa Community Foundation.
