Bursaries: Eligibility and Application

As a part of The Canadian Scholarship Trust Foundation's philanthropic initiatives, Learning Matters Education Charity Bursaries are granted to Canadian citizens or permanent residents who are entering or enrolled in a full-time post-secondary undergraduate education program at a recognized Canadian post-secondary institution.

Applicants must demonstrate financial need, community involvement, academic excellence, and have a career objective that will make a positive contribution in Canadian society.

The charity's Awards Selection Committee reviews all eligible applications and awards up to six $2,500 bursaries annually.

We’ll ask you to demonstrate financial need and how you’ll use your education to benefit Canadian society.

Bursary recipients will be notified in writing every year in August, and the funds will be forwarded to the applicable post-secondary school by September of the same year.


We'll ask you to submit your transcripts and a copy of your letter of acceptance, along with two letters of reference, a personal essay and information about your extracurricular and community involvement.

Submissions for our Awards is now closed. A huge thank you to everyone who submitted an application. We have been overwhelmed with the number of entries and we and our judges are looking forward to reading all submissions!
