Applicants must provide confirmation of spina bifida and/or hydrocephalus by a medical professional; be a Canadian citizen for at least two years; have a home address in north of Red Deer, the NWT, or Red Deer; and be accepted in a post-secondary institution.

Candidates are required to submit a letter of reference from a previous teacher or administrator (applicants who have been out of high school one or more years submit a letter from a recent employer or supervisor), an official Alberta Education or most recent post-secondary transcript, and a letter from the candidate stating his or her eligibility, community involvement, and plans for the future.

The scholarship will be presented to the winning applicants after the selection has been made. The cheque will be made out to the attending post-secondary institution.
