Now accepting applications for the Family Relief Summer 2021 Bursary

Last year, we took our usual Dream Serenade concert online and created a series of fundraising events that included an online merch shop, virtual auction and livestream concert. The continued spirit and generosity of our community through these fundraising activities have allowed us to continue our annual Bursary program — thank you!

The Family Relief Summer 2021 Bursary is an initiative from Dream Serenade intended to provide financial support for Toronto students with exceptionalities and their families during the coming Summer months. Applications are now open.

Who can apply?

Any Toronto District School Board student with a developmental disability who is enrolled in an Intensive Support Program and/or a congregated school is eligible. Bursaries will be awarded on a first come-first served basis as available funding remains, with priority to first-time Bursary recipients.

How do you apply?

Easy-to-complete applications are available now through the ‘Bursary’ tab on the Dream Serenade website, through your school Principals or social workers.

How much is available?

A $300 bursary is available per eligible child per household and may be used towards expenses related to food, caregiving, supplies and equipment needed during this time.

When do I apply?

Applications are being accepted now and as available funding remains, and may be submitted online or through your school principal/assigned social worker. Please direct any further questions to

Wishing you all a safe and smiling summer,
Dream Serenade Team
