Whether you’re still thinking about which trade school to apply for, or are entering your 3rd year as an undergrad student, the reality of how much everything will cost can be crushing. While costs have risen, investing in your education should be a top priority. Fortunately, there are lots of scholarships and bursaries designed to help you - if you know where to look.
Apply for scholarships
If you do a quick search on the internet, you can find tens of thousands of scholarships being offered in Canada. Do yourself a favour and apply for as many as possible, including the TD Scholarship for Community Leadership. Scholarships are awarded based on your achievements, income, community work and more. Make sure to find out exactly what is required when you apply. It will take more time to apply for a scholarship than a loan, but the extra work could pay off because a scholarship doesn’t need to be paid back.
