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 will award 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).

Important Dates 

Applications will be accepted starting March 1st and the application period will close April 14. Results will be announced by the end of May and bursaries distributed during summer. For your reference, we’ve provided you with the timing for 2023.
