Youth Education Awards

Scholarship Value: $5,000
Awards Available: 45

At Coast Capital Savings Federal Credit Union ("Coast Capital" or "we/our"), we are focusing our community investment towards initiatives that support youth. The Youth Education Awards reward students who have stayed committed to their education, even through adversity. Whether it's financial difficulties, family issues, personal loss, lack of supports, or health challenges, our Youth Education Awards can help.

For 2021, we're offering the following Education Awards:

1) Standing Tall Award - 43 Awards of $3,500 available

Our Standing Tall Awards support youth who have faced adversity and have not only risen up against the odds, but are demonstrating a commitment to continue their education. This award is open to students who have faced challenges like poverty, health issues, family issues, personal loss, or lack of supports (for example, youth who are, or who have been, in government care).

2) Beth Hutchinson Award - One $5,000 Award available

The Beth Hutchinson Award recognizes the young person in Surrey who best exemplifies a commitment to continuing their education in the face of considerable health challenges. Beth was an inspirational 2012 Standing Tall winner from Surrey. We're honouring her memory by making the Beth Hutchinson Award available to a student from her home community.
