National Scholarship Program
Supporting education for military family members
YOU CAN SUPPORT EDUCATION AND EMPOWERMENT FOR YOUTH
Support Our Troops launched the National Scholarship Program 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 and post-secondary education.
Through the generosity of companies such as, PCL Constructors Canada Ltd, BMO and Potti Corp., as well as individual Canadians, many youth of military members have realized their academic ambitions. But there are many more that could be helped.
DEMAND IS EXCEEDING CAPACITY.
In 2017, the National Scholarship Program received over 380 applications from youth in military families across Canada. Unfortunately, because of funds currently available only 8% of the applicants were awarded scholarships. Without additional scholarship funding, many qualified applicants will continue to be turned away. Some will abandon their academic dreams, others will struggle with stress and the financial burdens on their own.
STAND WITH US
Military families manage the challenges of relocation, absences and risk, and are the true heroes at home. These families, including many children work hard to maintain a balanced lifestyle and well-being within the home, and ease the impact of deployment.
Due to the unique circumstances of military life funds for pursuing post-secondary education are a significant barrier for many Canadian Forces’ families. Your support of the National Scholarship Program will remove many of those barriers.
YOUR SUPPORT COULD CHANGE A YOUNG LIFE
Your donation to the National Scholarship Program will assist a young person to overcome financial barriers and put them on the path to lifelong success.
