Student Awards
Canadian Scholarship Trust Foundation Founders’ Awards

The Founders’ Awards support students who have benefited from a Canadian Scholarship Trust RESP and are pursuing postgraduate studies. From university degrees to apprenticeships, all Canadian post-secondary programs are eligible for these awards.

The funds can be used to cover the cost of tuition and related expenses such as books, supplies or living expenses. In 2022, we will award 10 Founders’ Awards, each worth $10,000.
