RBC Students Leading Change Scholarship

 

Your Future, Your Community

As students across Canada continue to invest in their education, many are taking the time to invest in their communities as well. In recognition of the growing number of Canadian students showing a passion to lead and inspire positive change in their community, we have created the RBC Students Leading Change Scholarship.

The Scholarships
We are awarding a total of 15 RBC Students Leading Change Scholarships worth $10,000 each. There will be 8 scholarships awarded to graduating high school students and 7 scholarships awarded to students enrolled in any year of post-secondary studies.

Exclusive to RBC Royal Bank student clients
Although eligible for all 15 scholarships, 3 scholarships per student category (total of 6) will be reserved exclusively for RBC Royal Bank student clients. To qualify, you must be an RBC Royal Bank client from February 28, 2017 through to the winner announcement date.
