RBC Royal Bank Scholarships

Which RBC Royal Bank® Scholarship is right for you?

We recognize it takes a combination of both hard work and educational funding for most students to achieve their goals. That’s why we’ve developed a diverse set of scholarship programs worth over $500,000 a year to help address the critical need for student funding across Canada. Please review the chart below to see which scholarship is right for you.

The deadline for the RBC Students Leading Change Scholarship has now passed. Scholarship recipients will be announced in late July 2016.

Please come back in November 2016 to get details on next year's programs. Better yet, sign up to receive an email alert and we will email you as soon as our scholarship program is open for applications. We look forward to seeing you then.
