The National Scholarship Program is one of the ways that Girl Guides of Canada–Guides du Canada (GGC) recognizes members who embody the Mission and Values of the organization. The program supports members as they pursue their educational goals and rewarding career paths.

Scholarships are open to girl and adult members who are pursuing post-secondary education at a recognized college, university or trades program. Whether you’re studying engineering, education, political science, or anything in between, there’s a scholarship that’s right for you! 

Guiding involvement and participation are important criteria in the awarding of National Scholarships, and applicants must remain a member of Girl Guides of Canada for the upcoming 2016-2017 Guiding year.

Scholarships are available for both full-time and part-time studies.

Application deadline: April 3, 2017 at 11:59pm EST.
