MARIE POULOS BURSARY FUND

Posted on: February 13th, 2011 by Norm McEwen No Comments

The Marie Poulos Bursary Fund is available to Ontario residents who do not have access to private insurance or personal funding to attend intensive and semi-intensive programs at the Ottawa Stuttering Treatment Clinic.
