RBC recognize it takes a combination of both hard work and educational funding for most students to achieve their goals. That’s why they have developed a diverse set of scholarship programs worth over $500,000 a year to help address the critical need for student funding across Canada.

The deadline for the RBC Students Leading Change Scholarship has now passed. Scholarship recipients will be announced in late July 2017. Please come back in November 2017 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. The bank looks forward to seeing you then.
