Conditions

A scholarship will be awarded only after Scouts Canada has received adequate notice that the applicant has been accepted by the institution of study. Scholarship funds will be forwarded to the institution to be applied against tuition costs, primarily. If the applicant withdraws from the institution, the remaining monies will be returned to Scouts Canada.

Recipients are expected to continue involvement with Scouts Canada to every extent possible and must be a currently active and registered member of Scouts Canada.

Recipients must agree to have their names and photographs published in conjunction with the award, and with any promotion of the awards.
