Diversity Scholarship

About the Program

You could be eligible for a scholarship if you are going to attend a publicly funded Canadian college, university or approved apprenticeship-training program. We offer scholarships for students who are just graduating from high school or are currently enrolled in a post-secondary program or are returning to school after a break to complete an undergraduate program.

We have special scholarships that are awarded to people who have shown exceptional leadership in their school and community, or who have taken an active role in mentoring young people or have demonstrated a commitment to social justice.

Scholarships are $5000 distributed over four years.
