2023 Support Our Troops Scholarship Program

For families of currently serving Canadian Armed Forces members and veterans

This letter announces details of the 2023 Support Our Troops Scholarship Program available to families of currently serving members of the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) and veterans for the 2023/24 academic year.

This program is made possible through Support Our Troops, the official charitable cause of the CAF Community. Support Our Troops is supported by donations from individual Canadians, contributions from third party events and external organizations and proceeds from the sale of Yellow Ribbon merchandise. This Program is intended to complement but not duplicate other scholarship programs offered to the CAF Community.

This year (2023) represents the ninth year of the Support Our Troops Scholarship Program whereby eligible families of currently serving members of the CAF, families of veterans and bereaved families may qualify to receive a scholarship. At this time, a minimum of seventy-five (75) scholarships are available, ranging between $500 and $5,000 in value.

Registration for the 2023 Support Our Troops Scholarship Program will open on May 1 at supportourtroops.ca/Get-Support/Education/Scholarships.

Applications must be submitted by July 20 and are to include:

  • A three-part essay;
  • A letter of reference;
  • Most recent academic transcript;
  • Proof of enrollment from academic institution;
  • A point form list of volunteer/civic engagement activities.

Applications will be reviewed by a selection committee and recipients of a Support Our Troops Scholarship will be announced in September.

Members of the CAF Community looking for additional financial support related to post-secondary education are encouraged to learn more about Student Lines of Credit and to book an appointment with a lending expert from BMO Bank of Montreal.

In addition to the scholarships identified above, Support Our Troops also administers and distributes bursaries from the annual interest generated from the George and Helen Vari Foundation Education Bursary Program. Active members of the CAF who meet eligibility criteria may apply. For more information, please visit: supportourtroops.ca/Get-Support/Education/George-and-Helen-Vari-Foundation-Education-Bursary.
