Scouts Canada is pleased to award scholarships of up to $6,000 each. Amongst these scholarships are special awards that are presented in specific categories including:

HOW TO APPLY FOR A SCHOLARSHIP

Every year scholarships are awarded, with individuals receiving up to one award each. Awards are not renewable. Applicants must not have reached their 26th birthday on January 1 of the year in which they apply.

All applicants must complete the application form and compose a statement, no more than 200 words, on the value of Scouting in your life. Applicants must also provide two letters of reference (only one from within Scouting).

Candidates will be selected based on the following criteria:

A) Demonstrated Scouting history, involvement and achievement

B) Leadership contributions to Scouting

C) Community leadership and contributions outside of Scouting

D) Scholastic achievements up to the time of application

E) Attitude and aptitude

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.
