The Founders’ Awards support students who have benefited from a Canadian Scholarship Trust RESP and are entering/enrolling in post-secondary undergraduate studies in Canada for fall 2024. 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 2023, we awarded 14 Founders’ Awards, each worth $7,000.
