Big money up for grabs this winter
Scholarship funds are often set up by businesses and non-profits to encourage change, whether it’s more women in engineering, more Canadians in business abroad or more inclusion for disabled people in the workplace. Here are five such awards that undergraduates can apply for now.
Women in Defence and Security gives away thousands each year to female students interested in national defence and security. Awards are based on academics, participation in certain activities, and more. Applicants must have passed year three. The deadline is Nov. 30.
The Canadian Youth Environmental Leadership Scholarship will be given to two students in their second or third years of university who best combine academic achievement and public environmental service.
