TD Scholarships for Community Leadership are awarded to students in their last year of high school or CEGEP (in Quebec) who have demonstrated leadership in improving their community. Each scholarship has a value of up to $70,000 and includes:
- Up to $10,000 for tuition per year (for up to a maximum of four years)
- $7,500 a year for living expenses (for up to a maximum of four years)
All applications are carefully reviewed, taking into consideration not only each applicant’s contributions to the community but also their personal circumstances and any special challenges they may have faced along the way.
80 finalists from across five regions are then selected:
- Atlantic Canada
- Prairie Provinces/Northwest Territories/Nunavut
- British Columbia/Yukon
Regional selection panels (made up of prominent community members) then interview the finalists. Each region will have at least two scholarship recipients and 20 scholarships will be awarded across Canada (provided there are qualified applicants)
TD Scholarships for Community Leadership are open to students across Canada who are in their final year of high school or CEGEP; have a minimum overall grade average of 75% in their most recently completed school year and have demonstrated community leadership.
