The scholarship was renamed in 2016 in memory of AMI's former Accessibility Officer, Robert Pearson, who passed away suddenly in December 2015.

AMI will once again collaborate with the National Educational Association of Disabled Students (NEADS) to administer the program and engage students with disabilities from across the country.

Two $5,000 bursaries will be awarded to two deserving students with a permanent disability; one from the English community and one from the French.
