PHE Empowerment Grants

PHE Canada’s Physical and Health Education (PHE) Empowerment Grants are designed to empower schools to provide every student with the knowledge, skills, attitudes, and resiliency needed to lead a healthy and physically active life.


    The PHE Empowerment Grants Program is an annual grant initiative aimed at supporting PHE Champions and school communities across Canada.

    The 2022-2023 PHE empowerment grant applications have closed. Please check back in the fall for the 2023-2024 applications.

    2022-2023 Grants

    The PHE Empowerment Grants had two streams for the 2022-2023 school year.

    Applications are invited from school community members, including educators, administrators, and students (with a staff sponsor in place). Applications must demonstrate the need, value, and potential contribution to K-12 school-based physical and health education/learning; student and staff health and well-being; healthy school environments; educator capacity-building; amplifying student voice; and/or diversity, inclusion, and equity.

    Guided by the PHE Canada Research Council, the EDI Graduate Student Research Bursary will support the recruitment and retention of equity-deserving scholars in Physical and Health Education graduate studies and research. 

    The scholarship will normally provide funds for one graduate student per year. Projects must be led by a graduate student in a Canadian postsecondary institution. Successful applicants will normally be awarded a scholarship of $1,000.
