What's different about this scholarship?

Unlike other scholarship for youth in or from care, for this National Award:
  • Students do not need permanent care/Crown Ward status for this scholarship; it is open to anyone who experienced 12 cumulative months in government care, including foster care and youth custody centres before the age of 18
  • Students are guaranteed renewed funding ($2,500 per/year) for the length of their 2-4 year program totalling up to $10,000
  • Students must be starting the first year of their first 2-4 year program in September 2019 or January 2020
  • Funds will be transferred directly to the school and put towards tuition costs
  • Students may use funding in conjunction with any other scholarship or funding sources, including other Children's Aid Foundation of Canada scholarships
  • Students are guaranteed Rogers retail, call-centre and/or internship job interviews if they apply to any of those postings during their program and upon graduation
  • Enrolment and community leadership, not grades, are a criterion for recipient selection
