The RBC Indigenous Student Awards Program was launched in 1992 to assist Indigenous students to complete post-secondary education, and provide an opportunity for RBC to strengthen its relationship with the Indigenous community. Selected students are awarded up to $4,000 each academic year for two to four years to use towards tuition, textbooks, supplies and living expenses.
RBC awards ten scholarships in two categories:
A) For students majoring in disciplines related to the financial services industry
B) For students majoring in disciplines unrelated to the financial services industry
We also consider scholarship recipients who are interested in careers in financial services for summer and post-graduate employment.
