Investing in our military family community – National Scholarship Program

Support our troops

The Support our Troops National Scholarship Program is now open and is looking to award 41 scholarships ranging from $500 to $2,500 to children and spouses of military and veteran Canadian Armed Forces members.

Last year, 45 scholarships were awarded to those pursuing higher education in provinces across the country.

“I am incredibly honoured to have received this award. It will assist me greatly towards earning my degree in engineering,” said Sarah Hildt, Engineering student at the University of Alberta and 2018 Recipient. “Throughout my life, the military has been extremely supportive of my family. I am looking forward to accomplishing my goals!”

Support Our Troops launched the National Scholarship Program in 2015 to address the increasing need for education opportunities for military family members. Since the program’s inception, Support our Troops has provided over 150 military family members with some form of financial assistance for their post-secondary education.

“The Support Our Troops Scholarship Program is a clear demonstration of the Canadian community’s support for the military family constituency,” says Colonel Dan Harris, Director of Military Family Services.

Applications for the National Scholarship Program are now open until May 1, 2019. Find more information and apply at
