Since 2003, Scadding Court Community Centre has partnered with Toronto Community Housing, Toronto Police Services and other partners to provide scholarship opportunities to marginalized youth living in low-income housing across the City.


Investing in Our Diversity (IIOD) is a unique scholarship program, as recipients are chosen based not solely upon academic achievements, but also on demonstrated leadership in diversity, anti-racism and safety projects in their communities. It also gives applicants access to field-related employment opportunities, career building support and meaningful networks. Through our GTA-wide academic partners, recipients also receive a second year matching scholarship to students who maintain a specific GPA.


Over 17 years, IIOD has awarded over 500 students more than $1M in scholarships.


Providing equitable opportunities for young people to develop new skills, explore their interests, and enhance pride in their communities help make neighbourhoods safer, healthier, and stronger.


As of 2018, Toronto Community Housing took on the lead coordination role with the Scholarship Program. Please visit the Toronto Community Housing Website for more information, or if there is a specific question for our local community, please send a note to if you live in the Atkinson Co-op, or broader Alexandra Park neighbourhood.
