Directors Award 2023

The Sinneave Family Foundation (Sinneave) is an operating foundation based in Calgary, Alberta that has been committed to enhancing quality of life for autistic youth and adults since its inception in 2008.

The annual Directors Award honours the service of both current and previous members of Sinneave’s Board of Directors. The award supports the advancement of education by off-setting expenses connected with training that provides knowledge or develops abilities. This includes tuition and associated expenses, such as room and board, travel expenses, books and school supplies. The award can also be used to access any tools, aids or equipment that may be required to enable students to learn (for example, a course in computer-assisted design may require access to a computer and specialized software).

Instruction or training must be provided in a structured manner by a recognized educational institution. Proof of enrollment must be provided to Sinneave before payment of the award.

The 2023 Directors Award is closed to new applications.
