Descendants (i.e., the children of Day Scholars) are not eligible for direct compensation under the settlement. However, the settlement includes $50 million for a Day Scholars Revitalization Fund, established to support healing, wellness, education, language, culture, and commemoration activities for the benefit of the Day Scholar Survivor and Descendant Classes.
The funds will be administered by a non-profit society called the Day Scholars Revitalization Society that is independent of Canada and Class Counsel. Canada or Class Counsel are not involved in making decisions on who receives funding through the Day Scholars Revitalization Fund.
The process for applying for funding from the Day Scholars Revitalization Society has not yet been set. Day Scholar Survivors and Descendants will be able to apply for funding to support healing, wellness, education, language, culture, and commemoration activities.
