On May 12th we were honoured to host the Dr. Dan Andreae Scholarship Celebration. The Faculty of Social and Community Services had nine recipients from our Social Services Worker (SSW), Bachelor of Behaviour Sciences (BBS) and Developmental Services Worker (DSW) programs. Students were fortunate to have time to engage with Dr. Dan Andreae himself and share the incredible stories of their educational journey.

“I appreciate the generosity afforded to me by the Dr. Dan Andreae Commitment to Social Service Work Scholarship, and the opportunity to help me fulfill my dream of a career in human services and counselling psychology. I chose to complete my Social Service Worker Diploma at Humber College because I wanted to learn to support and empower individuals experiencing personal challenges and social issues. I hope to make an impact in policy and legislation and this scholarship has helped provide a pathway for my success, allowing me to focus on my education instead of worrying about financial constraints. It has helped me to grow my confidence and dedication to education and to the field of social service work. Thank you so much for your generous support for me and my learning experience!”

“I would like to thank Dr. Dan Andreae from the bottom of my heart for the Leadership in Developmental Services Work Scholarship award, and for being gracious enough to help students like me who are passionate about the field they choose to be in, but sometimes are faced with challenges.”

"Education is a dynamic and continuous journey, paved with learning and growth, and one that I am so happy to be on. I chose to complete my Social Service Worker Diploma at Humber College because I wanted to learn to empower individuals who have experienced difficult social issues. Humber has helped me to pursue my dreams, but also helped me to dream bigger. I hope to pursue my Bachelor of Social Work in September 2021 and to continue my post-graduate studies by eventually completing a Master of Social Work. The Dr. Dan Andreae Commitment to Social Service Work Scholarship has helped make that dream more possible and more tangible, as I am less worried about how I will pay for my continued education. This scholarship has inspired me and grown my confidence and dedication to education and to the field of social service work. I cannot express enough how much I appreciate your generous support and how much of an impact it has had on me and my learning experience!"
