National Scholarship Program – Supporting education for military family members



Due to the unique circumstances of military life, funds for pursuing post-secondary education are a significant barrier for many Canadian Armed Forces families. The National Scholarship Program works to remove some of those barriers.
Last year, more than $72,000 was awarded to military family members through 42 scholarships, with winners selected from over 400 competitive applications.

The 2020 National Scholarship Program is accepting applications from May 21 to Aug. 1. Scholarship recipients will be announced at the beginning of September. There are 50 scholarships available ranging from $500 to $2,500.


  • You are a dependent (includes spouse) of a serving or former member of the Canadian Armed Forces;
  • You are a Canadian citizen or permanent resident of Canada; and
  • You are enrolled in an undergraduate program leading to a degree, diploma or certificate at an accredited Canadian college or university. 
  • Post graduate and career college students are also welcome to apply.

All 2020 scholarship applications must include the following:

  • Proof of enrollment from an  academic institution
  • A three-part essay
  • A reference letter
