CNIB Foundation Dr Phiroz Dastoor Memorial Scholarship 2024

Established in 2022 by the family of Dr Phiroz N. Dastoor. Dr. Dastoor had a passion for education and believed that everyone should have equitable access to post-secondary opportunities. To commemorate and honour his love of education and spirit of volunteerism, his family is awarding one scholarship to a student who is studying at a Canadian university and has demonstrated financial need.
