SFBLF Annual Banting Legacy Scholarship for a Youth Living with Diabetes

The value of the Scholarship received by the student is $2,500. The student is also invited to meet fellow recipients and sponsors at a major event. In the past, the award presentation event has been held on a weekend at U of T and recipients housed in university residence accommodation at no charge (costs are covered by sponsors). The venue and event approach may be adjusted this year. The students also become part of a peer group of other former recipients and receive on-going ‘mentoring’ help and are encouraged to assume that role themselves as they progress. SFBLF also provides a special ‘certificate’ for the student which we hope to present to the student at their school if circumstances permit.

We administer the recipient selection process for this scholarship through a long-standing program run by the Diabetes Hope Foundation as do many other scholarship sponsors. Since 1999, 548 scholarships have been awarded to support students with diabetes to attend 69 post-secondary institutions globally; including 8 provinces in Canada, 7 US states, Poland, Switzerland, the UK and the West Indies.

Our scholarship recipient must be from our ‘region’ (loosely defined). The winner of our inaugural (2015) scholarship was a young woman from Patrick Fogarty Catholic SS in Orillia. She is now studying medicine at U of T. Being from ‘our region’ does not preclude any applicant from qualifying for an award sponsored by another organization. All scholarships in the program provide the same monetary award.

The recipients are chosen by a panel of independent, ‘third party’ experts from various medical, educational and healthcare provider organizations. The panel members are not given the name of the student or the school affiliation until after the selection process has been completed.

The deadline for receipt of online applications is March 2, 2018.  The documents required in support of the application take some time to complete and assemble (e.g. reference letters) so ‘last minute’ action is unlikely to prove successful.

Students can find the instructions regarding the online application process at

On that page, they will also find links to Scholarship Application Questions as well as standard forms for Reference Letters.
