The Nova Scotia Council for the Family offers Amanda’s Gift Bursary Program to former youth in care of the Province of Nova Scotia, ages 16-28, who are pursuing education or career opportunities.  The bursary is available to youth who were in permanent, temporary, or voluntary care at any time and who are not currently receiving the Department of Community Services Educational Bursary. We offer the bursary two times a year in June and October and eligible applicants may receive up to $1,500 per bursary.  For more information contact the NSCF at or  902-422-1316 ext.1 .
