Loans Canada's Financial Literacy Scholarship
Show Us Your Financial Literacy & Practical Money Skills And We'll Give You $750
Our goal is to help Canadians make better financial decisions, and we believe that financial literacy is the key to this mission. We think that financial literacy is a lifelong commitment, and we want to encourage students to be mindful about their relationship with money early on in their lives.
For this reason, we are awarding $750 to a student every semester. All you have to do is show us how financial literacy has made a difference in your life. Tell us how you've budgeted, saved, invested, paid down debt, applied for as many scholarships as possible or how your side-hustle has helped you bring in extra cash. We want to know how your exceptional financial management efforts have made a positive impact in your life.
We understand that qualifying for a scholarship can be hard. That's why we're not asking for your grades or your GPA, and we're leaving this open ended without any strict qualification rules. We want to hear your story! We want to know what you've learned and how you intend on using your financial knowledge to build a better future for yourself.
