Support Our Troops accepting national scholarship applications



The Scholarship Program is entering its fifth year; it was launched to address the increasing need for scholarship opportunities for military family members.

The goal is to assist more youth in military families to pursue their continuing post-secondary education.

In 2018, more than $75,000 was awarded to military family members through 45 scholarships with winners selected from 388 competitive applications.

This year, 41 scholarships are available and range from $500 to $2,000. Both full-time and part-time post-secondary students of accredited academic institutions, career and vocational colleges are eligible.

Eligible candidates are: a dependent (includes spouse) of a serving or former member of the Canadian Armed Forces; a Canadian citizen or permanent resident of Canada; and 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 eligible to apply.

This year there is a new application process in place. The 2019 application process consists of the following components:

  • 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 accepted until May 1 at 4 p.m. EST.
