Student Awards

Canadian Scholarship Trust Foundation Bursaries

The CST Foundation Bursaries are awarded to students who require financial assistance to access post-secondary education for the first time. From university degrees to apprenticeships, all Canadian post-secondary education programs are eligible for bursaries.

The funds can be used to cover the cost of tuition and related expenses such as books, supplies or living expenses. In 2023, we awarded 25 bursaries, each worth $6,000.

In order to apply, you must:

*First generation post-secondary education students are students whose parents did not attend post-secondary education (i.e. did not attend either college or university).
