The Canadian Scholarship Trust Foundation is a non-profit organization which has been dedicated to bringing higher education within reach for Canadian families for over 60 years helping over 800,000 Canadians achieve their post-secondary dreams. The Foundation began with a group of six like-minded individuals in 1960 who shared one common vision—that all Canadian children should have the financial resources to pursue post-secondary education.


The CST Foundation believes that post-secondary education plays a key role in developing the knowledge, skills, attitudes, and values to support people and societies manage economic, social, and environmental challenges. It provides economic success, increased well-being, and promotes social mobility for individuals while contributing to raising living standards and shaping a better world for all. In a world increasingly connected and driven by rapid technological change, post-secondary education is more critical than ever.
