$10 million in scholarships go unclaimed each year in Canada, while the average student debt in Canada is $26,000 and can take years to repay.
Dozens of scholarship application deadlines pass every month. That means that students are potentially missing out on thousands of dollars when they put their applications off.
Although every student in Canada is eligible for up to $500,000 in scholarships each year, the truth is that 99% of students don’t ever apply.
Not all scholarships are dependent on grades, so every family has an opportunity to reduce their student debt.
