Scholarships for Youth



Fondation Scouts Canada Foundation has established several scholarships to be awarded annually to support members of Scouts Canada entering or continuing full time studies at a Canadian university or college. These scholarships are presented in memory of Reginald K. Groome who, in addition to many other Scouting roles, served as Chairman of the Boy Scouts of Canada Trust for a number of years.

To enhance the mission of Scouts Canada through recognition of scholastic and other achievement by youth members of Scouts Canada.
To encourage continuous self development on the part of active youth members of Scouts Canada through institutions of post secondary education.

Number of Scholarships:
Up to twenty undergraduate scholarships will be awarded, each in the amount of $1,000. An individual may only receive one award. Awards are not renewable. The annual value of the combined scholarships shall not exceed $20,000.00

Age criteria:
Applicants must not have reached their 25th birthday on January 1st of the year in which they apply.
