Since 1995, TD has awarded millions in scholarships to recognize students who have demonstrated an outstanding commitment to community leadership. TD Scholarship for Community Leadership recipients receive up to $70,000 for tuition and living expenses as well as opportunities for paid summer employment, peer networking and mentorship. Supporting young community leaders is one way TD is helping build a more inclusive and sustainable tomorrow.
Have you shown exceptional leadership in helping to make a meaningful and lasting difference in your community? We'd love to hear about your community leadership efforts and what inspired you to get involved. We're more interested in the mark you're making in the world than the marks you're getting in the classroom. The program is open to students with an average of 75% and up who are supporting positive change in their communities.
TD is committed to helping to create the conditions needed to help people succeed in a changing world. Unique in Canada, the TD Scholarships for Community Leadership are awarded to students who are helping to support change, nurture progress and contribute to making the world a better place.
