Scholarships and Bursaries
The Legion does not have a national level bursary or scholarship program as all awards are administered by our local branches and Provincial Commands. They are responsible to develop the specific eligibility requirements, deadlines and application procedures, which can vary regionally.
Some bursaries are awarded from the Poppy Trust Funds to students who are children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren of Canadian ex-service persons (war veterans or post-war service) and who are in need of assistance. These bursaries may be awarded at any stage of a college or university program. Other bursaries and scholarships may be awarded from other Legion funds and the criteria are established by the respective branch or Provincial Command.
For complete information on the bursaries and scholarships available in your province or community, please contact the Legion branch nearest you.
