Today’s graduates are tomorrow’s leaders

As a reflection of our passion for higher learning and commitment to making post-secondary education financially accessible, CST offers two annual CST Scholarships in the amount of $6,000 for qualifying students. Established in 2012, in honour of Karthiha Guruparan and Bill Winsor, our Scholarships recognize and reward graduating high school students who are academically gifted, well-rounded, and pursuing their first undergraduate commerce, finance, business program at a recognized post-secondary institution.

The CST Scholarship program recognizes and rewards high performing students, and helps alleviate some of the financial burden that comes with paying for today’s rising cost of post-secondary education. There are two CST Scholarships awarded annually valued at $6,000 each. These Scholarships help outstanding students whose parents or guardians do not have a post-secondary education or received their post-secondary education outside of Canada.

CST Scholarship 2014 applications are still being accepted

The deadline to apply for the CST Scholarships is April 30, 2014. If you’ve got a high school student at home or you know one in the community who deserves to be rewarded and recognized, encourage them to submit an application by the deadline. Not only is it a source of additional income for a young person heading off to post-secondary education, but it is also a mark of distinction and achievement that your young scholar can include in their academic biography, professional resume and even their LinkedIn profile.
