The purpose of the COCHF Diversity Scholarship is to recognize people living in housing co-ops who are actively promoting diversity through work within their community. We want to help them with their post-secondary education by providing them with award money and financial planning.

Scholarships are made possible by the CHFT Charitable Fund. The Diversity Scholarship is based upon the Co-operative Principle #6: Co-operation Among Co-operatives. By working together, we are able to provide the most effective services for housing co-operatives.

COCHF recognizes that the strength of its membership is reflected in the many cultures and identities represented within its co-ops. COCHF encourages applications from these diverse communities.
