Support Students Through Scholarships

Scholarships and bursaries reward hard work, recognize need and support dreams.

Investing in students through a Scholarship or Bursary Fund can demonstrate your own passion for education or celebrate a loved one. When you establish a scholarship or bursary, you define the award criteria according to your own values and priorities.

Watch this video about Scholarship Funds at The Foundation to see the impact they have on the students and the generous donors that have established them.

We can connect you with schools and educational programs in our community, advise you of existing awards, and identify where funding is needed. We also handle administration of the award, including liaising with schools, ensuring students are selected according to your criteria, and arranging payment. Generally, The Foundation does not accept applications or select award recipients with the exception of the Graduate Award in Canadian History.
