ESRC researchers lead efforts for the "Migrant Children's Education Award"

Published on October 15 2012


"Niagara farmers employ 4000 migrant farm workers each year. Many of these workers return every year spending most of their working lives in Canada, leaving family in order to provide them a better life. It is time Niagara gives back to this forgotten community and give the gift of education to their children."

ESRC's Richard Mitchell and David Fancy have been working tirelessly to making the Migrant Children's Education Award successful. This award aims to provide funding to provide two students per year with full scholarships to either Brock University or Niagara College.
