We award scholarships to youth who have faced adversity in their lives and demonstrated tenacity. Many of our students would not be able to access post-secondary education without our help. With hard work and our support, their dreams can become reality.
In order to be eligible for a TCF Scholarship, applicants must:
Be a current resident of BC
Have lived in Canada for at least 7 years,
Be in Grade 12 or a recent secondary school graduate,
Have demonstrated financial need,
Have faced adversity,
Plan to be a full-time student,
Be ineligible for the BC Tuition Waiver Program (for former youth in care),
Use funding for a post-secondary institution, trade or college, and
Be endorsed by their school principal.
In addition to meeting the eligibility requirements, student applications will be adjudicated by a selection committee that will consider the student’s proven resilience in the face of adversity, their positive work ethic, their academic suitability, their contributions to their community, the clarity of their educational goals, their focused commitment, their fit with the organization, and the support of their references.
We reimburse up to $40,000 for books/tuition for an undergraduate degree or equivalent, provided the student makes appropriate academic progress in keeping with the scholarship guidelines.
We only fund undergraduate programs or equivalent.
If you would like to be nominated for this scholarship, you must email me a one page letter indicating how you meet the eligibility requirements. Your BRAG sheet must also be completed.
You will need to email me by December 12th.
