The Phyllis Harris Scholarship Fund builds the skills and experience of students who have volunteered or been employed in the general field of human sexuality and who intend to pursue a related career.
This legacy endowment fund honours the dedication and goals of Walter and Phyllis Harris, who were strong advocates of choice and autonomy for every person. The Harris Family created a scholarship fund to encourage future leaders in sexual and reproductive health and rights.
Students have been supported through this legacy gift for over 20 years and will continue to have access to meaningful work through funded summer placement opportunities. Action Canada is deeply grateful for the opportunity to share mentorship and expertise with developing leaders in the field who can benefit from the placements offered through the Phyllis Harris Scholarship.
This year, two Harris Scholarships are available. The successful candidates will help Action Canada grow our knowledge around the state of Comprehensive Sexuality Education in Canada.
