2020 EKO Scholars


We’re excited to announce the accomplished student leaders who are the recipients of the 2020 Empowered Kids Ontario Scholarship.

This is a milestone year for the EKO Scholarship Program: 2020 is the 10th year EKO is awarding scholarships to deserving youth from across Ontario.

We are honoured to recognize students with disabilities who have shown determination, self-advocacy, academic success and a commitment to their community, as they embark on this next phase of their lives.

Despite their different interests, academic pursuits and activities, a consistent theme emerges: the strength and resilience of young Ontarians who establish personal goals, set high expectations, and contribute positively to society.

Five honorees were selected for their demonstrated leadership, exceptional academic achievement, and engagement in their schools and in community activities. Recipients of the 2020 EKO Scholarship are attending college and university programs around the province, enrolling in programs from Public Relations & Strategic Communications to Human Resources Management, Art and Animation, Social Work, and Media Production.
