What is the TD Scholarship for Indigenous Peoples? 

Together with AFOA Canada, a not-for-profit led by Indigenous Peoples, we’ve worked to build a scholarship for Indigenous Peoples. Through it, 25 scholarships are available to be awarded annually, worth up to $60K over 4 years. Please stay tuned for updates.

Customized to the needs of Indigenous Peoples 

Students from the Indigenous community face unique challenges and systemic barriers that can make getting a post-secondary education difficult. So, we worked closely with AFOA Canada to build a scholarship program that helps meets the unique needs of students from the Indigenous community.

What is included in this scholarship? 

  • $10,000 towards tuition each year†

    For a maximum of 4 years

  • $5,000 towards living expenses each year

    For a maximum of 4 years

  • Employment opportunities at TD 

    Summer employment between years of study and full-time upon graduation7

†If tuition is less than $10,000 the balance can be applied towards living expenses.6
